In celebration of Earth Day, World Hope International, Katadyn Group, and Airlink hosted a webinar on responsibly responding to global emergencies.
From anticipating increasingly volatile climate conditions and being prepared to handle natural disasters, to responding to crisis in the moment of, to building resiliency in disaster prone areas; emergency relief can have a major impact on the environment – for better or worse.

This discussion covered:
- Creating sustainable emergency response plans
- Immediate challenges and the importance of clean water and sanitation
- The impact of single-use plastics on the environment short and long-term in disaster response
- Alternative clean water solutions in emergency response
- The roles for civil society in emergencies & best practices
