Global Waters Radio: Eddy Perez on Lessons Learned and New Trends in the Sanitation Sector | Global Waters, June 2016 |
Eddy Perez is a Professor of Practice in Sanitation at the Emory School of Public Health’s Center for Global Safe Water, Sanitation and Hygiene.
In his recent conversation with Global Waters Radio, Perez talks about his career in the sanitation sector, shares lessons he has learned along the way, and explains why sanitation improvements in both rural and urban areas must remain a programming priority in international efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Perez discusses both the challenges and opportunities inherent in the global development community’s pursuit of SDG 6.2, which within 15 years aims to “achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all and end open defecation” — an enormous task.
