Agricultural workers are expected to be some of the worst affected from the projected impacts of climate change, resulting in sixty percent of work hours lost due to heat stress in 2030. Climate change will also significantly the water cycle, introducing greater uncertainty into agricultural supply chain operations.
Providing WASH resources can make companies more resilient and productive in the face of climate change. This booklet provides information for sectors that are reliant upon the agricultural supply chain to protect and improve water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) resources for the people and business in the regions in which they operate.
The booklet was developed by Water Aid, along with the United Nations Global Compact CEO Water Mandate, for which the Pacific Institute is co-secretariat, DIAGEO, the Alliance for Water Stewardship, and WASH4WORK.
