Starter kit: Clean water and sanitation

Understand how technology can improve access to clean drinking water, reduce water waste, and protect natural resources.

In this session, get an overview of the Clean water and sanitation starter kit from the experts who created it. To encourage optimal water choices by consumers and local governments and to incentivize water sustainability, the starter kit contributors propose devising and implementing an API for water data collection and dissemination.

With an API, you could have a centralized way to:

  • Query geolocations of sustainable water sources
  • Simplify coordination and funding for water construction projects
  • Explore educational tools to support water sustainability and clean water access
  • Enable transparent water usage, cleanliness results, and site-to-site comparison
  • Access plain language case studies and legislation

Understand the first steps and resources to enable these channels to be developed to their fullest potential.
