Today, 1.42 billion people – including 450 million children – live in areas of high or extremely high water vulnerability (UNICEF, 2021). Addressing water issues is, therefore, key to adapting to climate change and reducing the negative impacts of water-related disasters. Join us for a conversation with Alonzo Fulgham to explore how investing in water infrastructure can increase our societies’ resilience.

This program is brought to you in partnership with The American Academy of Diplomacy and the World Affairs Council of America.
