Moving Beyond Lip Service for Sustainable Water

Marla Smith-Nilson, Founder and Executive Director, Water 1st International

Smith-Nilson believes the international aid community has mostly failed to find a workable way to help the 2.5 billion people who lack access to safe water and a toilet.  She has overseen the implementation of over 450 community water and sanitation projects wolrdwide. With 20 years of hands-on field experience with community-managed water, Smith-Nilson will talk about how to end the cycle of poverty by first providing people with clean water.
