A working paper from IRC and Water For People that seeks to:

  • Provide an accessible resource for Water For People and IRC teams and partners on the links between climate change, WRM, and WASH systems
  • Guide our advocacy on climate issues, identifying key messages based upon our experiences in the contexts where we work
  • Influence our programming and actions, including through annual and strategic plans

The paper's key messages are:

  • WASH system strengthening is climate action.
  • WASH must be a core component of climate financing and adaptation strategies.
  • We cannot face the challenge of climate change alone.
  • Water For People and IRC will walk the talk
