Water for resilient Honduran countryside

A new aid project brings us closer to the plight of Honduran farmers who, more than a year after being hit by hurricanes, have still not been able to recover from the destruction of their crops and their precarious water supply and sanitation facilities. At the epicenter of Central American migration, Honduras faces a future compromised by political instability, violence, and the climate crisis.

“Locker”: A life goes into every water ration

The short Locker, by the Indian Selvaraj, was the winner in the micro-fiction category of the fifth edition of the We Art Water Film Festival. It is a powerful allegory of the situation experienced by many of the more than 1.5 billion people who lack access to water in their homes. The protagonist of the short film lives in a neglected and poor arid zone. Her life and her family depend on having access to the water rations she locks in a drawer.

Sanitation and hygiene against the neglect of Congolese refugees

A new refugee aid project in Rwanda reminds us of the helplessness of those fleeing the almost silent wars and conflicts that continue to sow destruction and death.

Drop by drop, water will quench denialism

There is so much you can do. In the face of new denialism that devalues individual actions and fosters the idea that the solutions proposed to stop global warming are useless, the mobilization encouraged by water scarcity shows that every effort has the power to make effective changes. The drops of water you save do count.

Indonesia saving biodiversity

Indonesia: saving biodiversity is saving water

A new project on the island of Borneo reveals the precarious situation of people living in the most neglected rural areas of the island, where the availability of water does not guarantee access for most of the population. The loss of biodiversity makes access to water difficult for those who live there. This is another serious problem for what is still one of the great biosphere reserves.
