The lack of potable water in the developing world will be the focus of this session. The negative impact on people as well as the range of programs and products intended to mitigate it will be briefly surveyed. Silver-based ceramics will be explored in depth. With the help of organizations and individuals, sites of indigenous production for these ceramics have been established in various parts of the world. Prof. Manny Hernandez will share his experiences working in some of these communities. In addition, the ongoing work of IMSA students over the last decade to address the larger issue and also support these efforts will be highlighted.
