Proper nutrition from Stop Hunger Now meals not only allows children in Uganda to stay awake, concentrate and excel in school, it also gives them the energy to play and afford them time (otherwise spent scavenging or working for food) to simply enjoy their childhood.

This video examines inequality as it relates to access to water, sanitation and hygiene. Why do some have access while others do not? Why are some populations, countries, and groups being left behind, and what can we do about it?

WATERAID: Creating Sustainable Supply Chains through WASH

Clothing production is changing. From factory safety, worker conditions and animal rights to supply chains – by which we mean the network of people, resources and activities involved between the company and its suppliers to produce a specific product – all elements of production are under scrutiny, and consumers care. Ruth Romer, Private Sector Advisor at WaterAid, explains why and how multinational corporations should be investing in sustainable development. Beyond the apparel sector, global supply chains have a disproportionally large part to play in some of today’s most pressing social and environmental challenges, including access to clean water, decent sanitation and hygiene for people living in poverty globally. With 80% of global trade flowing through multinational corporations and one in five jobs linked to global supply chains, this presents an opportunity for scale and reach in driving positive change.

The Center for International Water and Sustainability was created by a generous grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation. The purpose of this focused International Water, Development and Global Sustainability center within the Desert Research Institute (DRI) is to address gaps in knowledge, research, and human resource capacity that persist in developing countries and assist in reducing health related issues and design of sustainable water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) programs.
