In Panama\, rura l communities lack formal municipal programs to secure and manage reliable drinking water sources leading to shortages\, waterborne illnesses\, and shortened lifespan. While many communities have benefitted from ad hoc vol unteer groups constructing infrastructure such as spring fed gravity fed a queducts\, the community was not taught how to manage and expand them. Thi s presentation highlights the challenges these communities face and how in ternational development groups can support them to self-advocate as they o rganize to receive formal federal support.
