How the Coronavirus Crisis Highlights the Need for Clean Water

David Feldman, professor urban planning & public policy and political science, Director of Water UCI, writes, “March 22 is World Water Day, designated by the United Nations to measure progress toward the goal of providing everyone worldwide with clean water for drinking and hygiene. Over the past 40 years, many nations have made great progress in treating wastewater, providing residents with clean drinking water and enhancing water supplies to grow needed food and fiber. But as a researcher focusing on water resources management and policy, I know there is still far to go.”
