Household Water Security Scale: Ag2Nut webinar co-hosted with ANH Academy

Date and Time: 

Wednesday, March 13, 2019 - 15:00 to 16:00

The 2019 World Economic Forum report estimates that 9 of the 10 worst global risks are linked to water, but measurement of water insecurity is still in its early days. Dr. Sera Young will introduce the development and use of the Household Water Insecurity Experiences (HWISE) scale, the first cross-culturally equivalent way of measuring household water insecurity (hwise.org). We will discuss the opportunities that the use of this short, 12-item module has for research and policy.
