FSMA Spotlights: What does Climate-Smart Sanitation look like?
In this webinar, FSMA Spotlights showcases what low-carbon sanitation and climate-resilient can look like in practice. We will also explore the connection between sanitation and climate finance to help bridge the finance gap in achieving SDG 6 2030 targets.
The sanitation sector has been overlooked for too long in the climate change agenda, but it is finally starting to get some attention. There is an increasing recognition that poorly-managed sanitation and wastewater systems are not only a big contributor to carbon emissions, but also that climate change threatens existing sanitation systems and public health gains made over the past decades. This recognition is important not only for achieving greater resilience in sanitation systems but also for eventually attracting climate finance into water and sanitation. Still, much more needs to be done at the global and regional levels.
This session will focus on sharing ongoing approaches in connecting sanitation to the climate change agenda through better design, better research, and better financing.
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A discussion.
The FSMA Spotlights webinar series aims to highlight key aspects and discussions around FSM and the sanitation service chain.
