Overview

Understand the complexities of access to water

We all need water every day, yet 1.1 billion people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water. For many, obtaining water for their families is a difficult, time-consuming task, falling heavily on the shoulders of women and girls. There is widespread agreement that people have a basic human right to the water needed to sustain life, yet this right has not been realized for nearly 1 of every 7 people on earth.

On this course you will learn about the issues of gender inequality and human rights in relation to water, and the diplomatic efforts that are helping to improve access to water.

This course is for anyone interested in learning about human rights, access to water and diplomacy. You don’t need any past experience.
