Small water disinfection systems: UV light & the role of women in remote communities
Organizer: International Water Association (IWA)

This webinar is organised by the IWA Sanitation and Water Management in Developing Countries Specialist Group and it is co-hosted by the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA).

Women and girls often carry the responsibility of collecting water, and they are disproportionately affected by poor water services and contaminated water. However, their perspective has historically been excluded from large-scale efforts to improve water access in low-income settings. To overcome these inequalities, the voices and needs of women and girls must be at the forefront as we design new and effective methods of delivering safely managed drinking water to communities in developing regions. In response, this webinar will explore the crucial role of women in water resource management, particularly for water disinfection in small or rural communities.
