Presented by Sharon Grijalva
Water privatization is an extremely important topic in the global sphere that ties private and public sectors of different countries together. It is connected with global institutions that play a very important role in water privatization such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. It also raises important global concepts such as the right to water as a human right and the effects this has on poverty, as global social issues.
The topic that will be covered in a webinar analyzing water privatization and the effects that this has had on different regions throughout Latin America. Different case studies will show that water privatization has had a negative effect in different South American countries, rising water prices and limiting water accessibility to the poor. These effects will be examined as well as the reasons why water privatization is implemented in the first place. Water privatization often demonstrates the effect that the government or lack of government has on the public and how this affects poverty increases in Latin America.
This webinar is perfect for those who are interested in economic policies that affect the public sector and those interested in the effects of privatization in general, Latin America and poverty issues.
