Resilient Bolivia, an example to overcome the water crisis

The Water War in Cochabamba in 2000 was one of the most significant moments in the fight for the right to water in Latin America. But Bolivia has not solved its severe water problems yet and it is one of the most threatened countries by climate change. Its battle is not lost: the "water committees" are a social empowerment tool and the best guarantee of resilience.

Technology is necessary, but it isn´t everything

We need to start thinking more about how we interact with water instead of how we control it. The most developed countries are designing an intelligent water network that is able to control the supply problems and prevent natural disasters. But the solution based on a model that is exclusively technological is not the right one and it can increase the already existing barriers for those who do not even have water.

India, the giant menaced by water

India encompasses all water and sanitation problems present nowadays in the world, and it is especially menaced by global warming. In 2016, drought showed its climate vulnerability, but this large country also has the seed to find solutions: ancestral knowledge, enormous resilience and an immense development capacity to become a reference point in adaptability and mitigation.

Is a regenerative city possible?

Can Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, New Delhi... become cities that regenerate as many resources as they consume? This is a very high demand, a utopia according to many, but from the water perspective we need to start thinking about making it possible or at least, about getting close to it. We need to be close to the concept of reuse, and in many cases time is of the essence.
