The Delegation of the European Union in the US, the Embassy of Spain, the Inter-American Development Bank and We Are Water Foundation invite you to a seminar on the right to safe drinking water and sanitation for all people. Sustainable water management is one of the key challenges of the 21st century. The importance of clean water cannot be underestimated, as it is directly linked to the realization of many UN Sustainable Development Goals.

This program will explore the leading work the EU and Spain have done in promoting water diplomacy, as well as the work of Human Rights Watch in California.
