Another Drop September 2016

The United Nations University Institute for Water, Environment and Health (UNU-INWEH) is pleased to invite you to its next free, public lecture! 

Another Drop From Your Tap

Water has a multitude of uses and touches on almost every aspect of our lives. Yet, almost 663 million
people in the world lack access to safe water. Clean drinking water is a human right taken for granted
in Canada. However, with climate change, increasing populations and worsening pollution, water
may become a much-sought after commodity here too.

The water crisis in Flint, Michigan - Hamilton’s sister city - highlights the potential for water insecurity
anywhere. UNU-INWEH presents a panel of experts to explore the topics related to water security by
answering three questions:
• Why did Flint happen; can it happen here?
• Why do people around the world lack access to clean water; can it happen here? and
• Do we need to rethink water management?
