Water, Women and Workers: sources of life

Water, Women, Workers: sources of life” is the theme of this year’s PSI campaign, starting on International Women’s Day on 8 March and ending on World Water Day on 22 March. The campaign includes a focus on climate change and sustainable development. It will highlight the importance - especially for women - of quality public services in health, water and education.

The campaign’s key messages are on:

  • the negative impact of water privatisation, which disproportionately affects women;
  • the influence of climate change on clean water supplies and sustainable development;
  • universal access to safe water as a human right;
  • and a call for governments to publicly own and manage water supplies.
