Adapting in a time of crisis, organized by WSUP

In 2020, the Covid-19 crisis exposed the fragilities of urban living for many people, and put regular water supply and effective hygiene at the top of the agenda for many communities.

But as we move into 2021, and with vaccines in sight, what has really changed? Has the Covid-19 crisis propelled the WASH agenda forward, or set it back? How are cities responding to the need to provide basic services, and what innovation have we seen in the sector?

Join us for our Adapting in a Time of Crisis online discussion, to hear from a panel of experts on how cities are responding to the need for improved water, sanitation and hygiene in the light of this crisis.

Speakers include:
Helena Dollimore, Senior Manager, Global Sustainability, Unilever
Jeff Goldberg, Director, Center for Water Security, Sanitation and Hygiene, USAID
Neil Jeffery, Chief Executive, WSUP
Andrea Jones, Program Officer, International Programs, Hilton Foundation
Frank Kettey, Country Programme Manager, Ghana, WSUP
Gerald Mwambire, Managing Director, Malindi Water & Sewerage Company, Kenya
Andy Wales, Chief Digital Impact and Sustainability Officer, BT (moderator)
