US Water Alliance Releases 'An Equitable Water Future: A National Briefing Paper'
Earlier this month, the US Water Alliance released a comprehensive briefing paper on the connections between water management and vulnerable communities living in America.
Water challenges are often considered in the context of failing infrastructure or environmental pollution. An Equitable Water Future offers a robust analysis of the often-overlooked human dimension of water management, with a focus on how water can expand opportunity for our nation's most vulnerable people.
The paper focused on three pillars of equitable water management:
1. Ensure all people have access to clean, safe, affordable water service;
2. Maximize the community and economic benefits of water infrastructure investment; and,
3. Foster community resilience in the face of a changing climate.
More than 100 real world examples of effective programs and policies are covered in the report. The US Water Alliance thanks the more than 100 contributors who lent time, talent, and expertise to the paper. |
