  • Transcript

    • 1. CHANGING THE GAME: - ABCs of Sustainability - Collaboration
    • 2. 783 MILLION PEOPLE ARE WITHOUT ACCESS TO WATER THE ISSUE NATURAL FACTORS Uneven distribution of resources ANTHROPOGENIC FACTORS Uneven distribution of wealth, poverty, unequal access to better economic opportunities 2.5 BILLION PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO ADEQUATE SANITATION WHY?  In developing countries, 80% of illnesses are attributable to contaminated water and a lack of proper sanitation  By 2025, 5,3 billion of us __ 2/3 of the world’s population __ could lack access to enough water to meet their basic needs
    • 3.  Focusing on the infrastructures only  No sense of community ownership  Failure to build on local culture and values  Inadequate training, lack of trained people  Poor maintenance of infrastructures  Daunting poverty, few economic opportunities  Inadequate financing  Over-extraction, inadequate recharge  No monitoring or feedback THE WORST OF IT: 30%-50% FAILURE Billions of $$$ going down the toilet, millions of hours wasted in implementing unsustainable initiatives to guarantee access to water, sanitation and hygiene for all and forever WHY?
    • 4.  While the issue is global, sustainable solutions are local. Our model is community- centered and aims to empower people to create long-term positive change.  In the WASH sector, addressing behavior change alongside water access issues is distinctive to ONE DROP. It is an important key to our success. Large-scale projects: $5-10 M over 5 years The ABC approach has proven highly effective in comparison to other models in the sector. Seven years after the start of our first project in Nicaragua, an independent study revealed that 85% of the infrastructures provided by ONE DROP were still in operation. (Groupe Conseil Baastel, 2011.) ONE DROP’S APPROACH: THE ABCs OF SUSTAINABILITY
