«The Water for resilience and reconciliation program in Syria»
Access to safe drinking water is a fundamental human right, yet in Syria it is a critical issue.
Widespread insecurity and looting, the weaponization of water, the flight of trained personnel, a lack of spares and energy shortages have all severely degraded the country’s water infrastructure. Today, about 70% of the population lacks access to safe drinking water, and the situation is continuallyworsening. With unsafe sources of water supply, Syrians are increasingly vulnerable to contaminated water, waterborne diseases and price gouging. Furthermore, deterioration of irrigation water supply has led to a drastic decline in agricultural production as water diversion and destruction of networks have become commonplace. Lack of water is, consequently, a major driver of population displacement. Water is a strategic entry point into addressing needs across sectors. While not a solution to all problems in Syria, improving access to safe water and restoring water infrastructure contributes to efforts in health, livelihood, food security and shelter. Water is not only essential to immediate emergency relief, it is also integral to longer term prospects. Water and water sharing, will be an important element in the recovery and reconciliation process.
This internship is unpaid, only a fee of 100 CHF (transportation fees) per month is attributed to the trainee.
