Turn the tide: the state of the world’s water 2021

WaterAid releases a new report: “Turn the tide: The state of the world’s water 2021”, which shows how people are losing access to clean water as longer droughts dry up springs, seawater infiltrates groundwater supplies and landslides take out water pumps. The report highlights that investing in water systems that provide a reliable supply whatever the weather, is a frontline defence against the impact of climate change. Without a reliable source of drinking water close at hand, day-to-day life is a challenge. Climate impacted communities are forced to depend on dirty water that makes them sick or walk long distances for clean water.
