Water News and Reports

What if we stop talking about water and start talking about water security?

Water will always be there, but not water security. It is a more enveloping concept that allows experts to better communicate the complexity of the urban water cycle to citizens, making them participate in its management model, in its benefits and risks. Well informed users enable the creation of a context with a participatory and transparent governance in which we all feel involved. Water security goes beyond the simple access to water and implies constant work.

India, a change with woman’s name

Around fifty thousand women in Haiderpur will overcome the hygienic difficulties of menstruation, and many more have found work opportunities. Also more than 660 families in Bhiwadi can now avoid open defecation. Some testimonies of women benefitting from the projects of the Foundation in India show the importance of working for gender equality throughout the entire country.

Who can be left behind?

Those who are invisible in the censuses, discriminated women, the inhabitants of the most vulnerable slums, all those ruined by droughts, those surrounded by polluted water, those on the other side of the technological barrier and those with no access to education on hygiene; all these population groups risk being excluded of the attainment of the Human Right to Water and Sanitation.

Water, symbol and metaphor

Our relationship with water goes beyond the survival of our body, beyond dignity and justice, it is spiritual. H2O, the short film by the Bangladeshi Ahmmed Raihan, one of the finalists of the We Art Water Film Festival 4, reflects how water has been an element that for thousands of years has united us all as a symbol of transformation and a metaphor of an ethical lifestyle.
