Smart Aid: World Water Day 2016

Wednesday, March 23, 2016 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

Access to clean water and adequate sanitation leads to improvements in health, school attendance, productivity, and entrepreneurship, yet almost 2 billion people live without it. MCC and its partner countries have prioritized WASH, investing over $700 million and leveraging millions more from public-private partnerships.

WaterAid America and MCC partnered to discuss issues in the Agency’s Water and Sanitation Sector, the SDG’s, and to share more about the Agency’s water-related investments in Jordan, Zambia, and Cabo Verde.

Event speakers included:

  • Sarah Dobsevage, Director, Strategic Partnerships, WaterAid America
  • Kumar Ranganathan, Practice Lead and Senior Director, WASH, MCC
  • Omar Hopkins, Director, WASH, MCC
  • Marycel Tuazon, Associate Director, WASH, MCC
