The role of chemical exposures in reducing the effectiveness of water–sanitation–hygiene interventions in Bangladesh, Kenya, and Zimbabwe
Published Online: Aug 22 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1478
The prevailing conventional approach to water‐sanitation‐hygiene (WASH) development considers only biological agents of waterborne disease (and to a limited degree arsenic and fluoride in a few specific locations). However, chemical toxicants including heavy metals as well a wide array of organic chemical pollutants such as pesticides, pharmaceutically active compounds, industrial chemicals, and substances released from the breakdown of wastes and consumer products heavily impact water sources, food, and domestic and work environments in low‐income countries. Achieving transformational public health outcomes through WASH development will require addressing both biological and chemical agents of disease.

What to do when invaders are out of control?
Published Online: Aug 15 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1476
Conventional management responses to invasive species are focused on prevention and control in earlier stages of invasions. Managing impact modifiers (MIM) is focused on addressing impacts, rather than invaders themselves. Evidence from the world's worst invasive freshwater fish and detailed case studies indicate MIM is a viable alternative to conventional approaches.

Troubled waters: Maori values and ethics for freshwater management and New Zealand's fresh water crisis
Published Online: Aug 28 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1464
Braided rivers such as the Rakaia River pictured here, one of many that predominate on the east coast of the South Island are among the many outstanding features of New Zealand's freshwater systems. The relationship of New Zealand's indigenous Maori to these freshwaters is one of deep relationality through genealogical connection. They are intrinsic to Maori identities and to the wellbeing of Maori communities. The last 20 years has seen the degradation of these freshwaters, including the Rakaia, to the point where many are now permanently degraded. In this context, the engagement of Maori traditional knowledge and ethics is essential to the mitigation and restoration of these fragile freshwater systems.
