Date: Tuesday, 13 September
Time: 7am-8.30am
Cost: $15 AUD (Tier 1) / $30 AUD (Tier 2)

 

In India, 60% of the population lack access to toilets. In Southeast Asia, this amounts to one billion people. Poverty in this region is a central concern, where death and disadvantage occur in part through lacking access to clean, safe water—which is a key intervention for primary health prevention. The United Nations seeks to address this limitation in one of its 17 Sustainable Development Goals: ‘to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all’. To respond and contribute to the technology, behavioural change and systems thinking behind this goal, the University of Queensland has established an initiative on water, health and sustainable development.

A panel discussion will investigate the contribution that water researchers can provide on water, sanitation, heath and beyond to the Asian region, facilitated by Associate Professor Eva Abal, Program Director of the Sustainable Water Program at The University of Queensland’s Global Change Institute. An active discussion with audience members will be facilitated at each table over a catered breakfast.
