From 13-24 March, Simavi was among the many thousand attendees of the 61st session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) in New York. The conclusions which came out of this platform can be used by civil society actors to hold their governments’ accountable to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment.
World Water Day, which takes place every year on 22 March, focuses on taking action to tackle the water crisis. Today, over 663 million people live without a safe water supply close to home, who are forced to spend countless hours queuing or trekking to distant sources, and cope with the health impacts of using contaminated water. Simavi spoke to Lonneke Craemers, Director of Dopper Foundation, about this year’s theme: wastewater.
