Registration here for free: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8304156524345528845 Established by the World Toilet Organization in 2001, World Toilet Day was made an official UN day in 2013. Today, this event draws attention to the global sanitation crisis, and advocates for the achievement of SDG 6. Currently, 4.2 billion people live without safely managed sanitation. These people can be left behind when trying to access sanitation services or improve their current facilities. Not only sanitation issues matter but also the social, economic and environmental consequences of inaction. A toilet is not just a toilet. It’s a life-saver, dignity-protector and opportunity-maker. And, most of all, sanitation is everyone’s human right, anywhere around the world. Learn more by accessing the WTD 2019 fact sheet, and start preparing for IWRA’s webinar!
