The Future of Water in El Salvador
September 4, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Please join Oxfam, the Institute for Policy Studies and the Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES) for a conversation with Karen Ramírez about the future of water in El Salvador.
Karen Ramírez is Project Manager of the Salvadoran Association of Humanitarian Aid (Pro-VIDA) Association and a leader in the National Alliance against Water Privatization in El Salvador.
Since 2018, the Alliance has been successfully fending off a coordinated attempt by El Salvador’s right-wing political parties to bring corporate entities into the public management of the country’s fragile water resources. With the recent election of president Nayib Bukele, El Salvador’s environmental movement is preparing for a distinct set of new challenges.
Join us for an informal conversation with Karen about what’s on the horizon for the environmental movement in El Salvador, including for land and water defenders, and what U.S. allies can do to support the urgent struggle for water as a human right.
