Water is the driving force of all nature - Leonardo da Vinci
While nearly 70 percent of the world is covered by water, only 2.5 percent of it is fresh. The rest is saline and ocean-based. Even then, just 1 percent of our freshwater is easily accessible, with much of it trapped in glaciers and snowfields.
Water is a complex issue because it is linked to almost everything in the world and is fundamental for human existence and for the sustainability of the planet.
The United Nations Members and Partners have helped place water and sanitation at the heart of recent milestone agreements such as the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the[masked] Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the 2015 Addis Ababa Action Agenda on Financing for Development, and the 2015 Paris Agreement within the UN Convention Framework on Climate Change. The United Nations created the Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6) to “Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all”. As a result, SDG 6 and its various targets take the entire water and sanitation cycle into account.
And water affects climate change, gender equality, human rights, health, food and energy to name just a few.
Gather your H2O questions and insights! We’re bringing together Women in Water spanning water use and efficiency, water conservation, and water treatment across multiple sectors for an evening of educational discussion that will widen our view on the real issues and the solutions that we need to develop and create to move from scarcity to abundance!
Our panel of experts will weigh in on:
How water conservation efforts have shifted in light of California’s transition out of drought
The intersection of infectious control standards against the healthcare industry water conservation efforts
Emerging Water Policy
What can we do in our everyday life to help?
Our Panelists include:
Maureen Erbeznik, Water Technical Advisor for the Los Angeles Better Buildings Challenge, a DOE sponsored national leadership initiative.
Michelle Tarian, Senior Project Manager, Water Saver Solutions
Alexandra Causey, Business Development Manager, U.S. Water
Dana Haasz, Associate Director, Customer Sucess, WaterSmart Software
