While BARPCV is not currently focused on an advocacy issue, past issues have included:
Clean Water (10/2008 – 05/2010) Clean water is of central importance, to which many RPCVs can attest. Access not only limits the spread of disease, but is central to proper nutrition and daily functioning. Many families travel long distances to wait in endless lines for clean, potable water, though access to clean water is often thought to be a basic human right. For additional information and resources on clean water, please use the following links:
Darfur (10/2007 – 10/2008) Critical issues that have fueled problems in Darfur include natural resources, politics, minority and human rights, international involvement and advocacy, the environment, public health, water and refugees.
