Water for Life – Andrew Parker, UNICEF

Imagine not having access to water or toilets? Almost impossible to imagine in Australia, it is an everyday reality for 2.6 billion people around the world.

Without access to clean water or sanitation facilities, children are more susceptible to diarrhoea and disease.

Yet providing proper sanitation to everyone who needs it, is often more complex than just simply building a toilet. Work must be done with communities to bring about behaviour change and community ownership of sanitation facilities.

Andrew Parker, primary advisor on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) for UNICEF, speaks about his experiences working overseas to improve water and sanitation in developing countries and what more needs to be done.
