Linked with the opportunities, activities and networks of UNU-INWEH, Water Without Borders addresses issues of international importance related to water, environment and health. These could include, but certainly are not limited to:

  • Why do 1 billion individuals in the world continue to go without access to safe water on a daily basis?
  • Why does almost half the world’s population lack access to adequate sanitation?
  • What are the international governance structures that would allow us to safely steward this valuable resource?
  • What impacts will climate change have on the distribution and diffusion of water borne illness such as cholera?
