-By Maria Jolly, a graduate student in the Rollins School of Public Health 

These videos connect water and environmental justice issues in Atlanta to those happening in other parts of the globe. The first part focuses on the West Atlanta Watershed Alliance and its efforts to tackle the issue of storm water and sewage outflow. The second part explores water issues from an international perspective and examines initiatives to curb flooding in Pakistan. Flooding can be induced by climate change and is among the problems facing the global community amid efforts to assist countries dealing with natural disasters.
