Water and Faith: Rights, Pragmatic Demands, and an Ethical Lens

March 1, 2012

Prepared jointly by the Berkley Center and WFDD, this report reviews the roles that faith-inspired leaders, communities, and organizations play in worldwide efforts to assure universal access to clean water and sanitation. It aims to inform policymakers and practitioners about the "state of play" and suggest areas where action is both desirable and feasible. It also traces a future research agenda, including an annotated bibliography for select resources useful for future investigations. This is one of a series of issue surveys made possible through the support of the Luce/SFS Program on Religion and International Affairs.
