Addressing the Urban Global Water Crisis
Pacific Science Center
200 Second Avenue N
Seattle, WA 98109
Despite major improvements to global living standards, there are still 2.1 billion people worldwide without access to safe drinking water and even more without basic sanitation facilities. To date, most funding for water, sanitation, and hygiene has targeted rural areas. Yet future water crises will be in cities, where 70% of the world’s population will live by 2050. In honor of March’s World Water Day, join PacSci with Kara Uhl and Kelbessa Wordofa of local non-profit, Splash, for a talk about the urban water crisis and its promising solutions, and learn how Splash is helping to support clean water and sanitation for all.
