Project ID 2210225011

While LAC has abundant water resources, its distribution is very heterogeneous and the region is particularly sensitive to global changes (glacier recession, floods and droughts, erosion and sedimentation, high urbanization). About 40 million people lack access to adequate water supply and about 75% of wastewater is discharged without treatment, affecting water quality and ecosystems. This activity contributes to enhancing science for a water secure region in a changing environment, and corresponds to the regional implementation of the IHP-IX. Deliverables include strategies, scientific publications, the establishment of demosites and water monitoring tools, as well as scientific training and dissemination events. Particular attention will be provided gender-equality, youth and SIDS.
