Throughout the first day, participants will discuss the role of the science and technology communities in upholding the human right to water and the implications of the human rights framework for scientists, engineers, and health professionals who work to improve access to safe, affordable water supplies. Sessions will highlight examples of actionable scientific research that is contributing to human rights-based water policies. In addition, panelists will share models for collaborative partnerships with frontline communities. Meeting attendees will be invited to participate in small group discussions in which they will identify specific actions members of the Coalition can take within their associations and institutions.
Coalition meetings convene scientists, engineers, and health professionals with human rights leaders and policy makers to discuss emerging issues at the nexus of science and human rights. The Coalition serves as a catalyst for the increased involvement of scientific, engineering, and health associations and their members in human rights-related activities.
