Farooq Ullah is one of the speakers of our 2019 Law & Development Training Programme. He will be delivering a session on ‘Environmental Law and Development, and SDG 17’ during the next module on ‘Sustainable Development’ (9 February 2019).
Water is essential for life, human dignity, and the health of people and planet. To rise to the challenge of delivering SDG 6, Peter Newborne, specialist researcher and consultant on water policies and programmes, first shares his thoughts on the issue of equitable access to water using a case study from Burkina Faso.
Then, in the following text, A4ID highlights how a project led by the Center for Water Security and Cooperation to build an online water law database for Africa, is contributing to strengthening legal infrastructure around SDG 6.
There are so many reasons to undertake legal pro bono, but a reason that is often overlooked is that pro bono makes business sense.
Koldo Casla, Research Associate at the Institute of Health & Society of Newcastle University and the Policy Director of Just Fair (@JustFairUK), shares his thoughts on the poverty and inequalities that still plague the United Kingdom. Achieving the objectives of the SDGs in terms of poverty (SDG 1) and inequalities (SDG 10) not only concerns developing countries but is also a challenge for our wealthy countries.
As this contribution shows, poverty and inequality are the products of policy decisions and constitute breaches of human rights. A4ID believe that the law and lawyers have a role to play to help redressing these injustices, both within the UK and abroad.
A4ID is pleased to announce a partial scholarship for self-funded applicants.
