With our climate changing at an alarming rate, it is becoming harder and harder for the world’s poorest people to get clean water. 785 million people currently lack access to this basic resource – that’s one in ten people – making it harder to cope with the growing effects of the climate crisis.

In Turn the tide: the state of the world’s water 2021, we look at the tangible impact on the daily lives of individuals living in areas affected by climate change. Everyone, everywhere should have access to clean water, whatever the changing climate brings.
