Water and Sanitation Related Diseases and the Environment

I spent today at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study’s event, “The Future of Water: Cloudy with a Chance of Solutions.” The event was also live webcast and the lectures will be up on youtube in a few weeks. I’ll remark more on the day after I gather my thoughts; the day ranged from desalination to endocrine disruptors to ethics and bisphenol-A to commodification to fracking…a lot of ground topped off by remarks regarding a national U.S. water strategy.

In the meantime, I had the great pleasure of chatting with Janine Selendy, who edited a fantastic new book, Water and Sanitation Related Diseases and the Environment: Challenges, Interventions and Preventative Measures. The book is a bit pricy, but also has some additional features, including multimedia components and it is also supported by this website oriented towards solutions.
