Water emerges as one of the most precious contemporary resources, being absolutely vital to sustain life and health. This session will examine important policy issues related to water access, including the transfer of water control in the United States from federal to local government, how families access water in underserved communities and countries, and the connections between water, infrastructure, and movements in favor of nutrition and physical activity.
Session Objectives: Explain the catalytic role of water in regulatory reform. Identify and Analyze elements needed for successful community action to protect watersheds.
