EVENT: Digging Deeper: Water, Women, and Conflict
Please join the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Environmental Change and Security Program for a discussion of Digging Deeper: Water, Women, and Conflict, featuring:
- Carla Koppell, Senior Coordinator, Office of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment, USAID
- Sandra Ruckstuhl, Senior Social Scientist, Group W Inc.
- Dennis Warner, Senior Technical Advisor for Water and Sanitation, Catholic Relief Services
Around the world, poor women are responsible for finding water for their families and farms. Women and girls procuring water in conflict zones are frequently victims of violence. USAID and the Wilson Center are seeking deepen the understanding of the root causes of conflict and the practical connections between gender-based vulnerability, water access, and conflict-affected areas. Join us as three experts share insights from field work and research on water access in conflict-affected areas and ways to build peace and stability through water projects.
