It’s not yet possible to measure exactly what impact climate change may be having. But we do know that climate change often exults in too much or too little water. Flooding, drought and ruinous storms wipe out homes, fragile infrastructure and livelihoods, with a disproportionate impact on the world’s poorest people.
WaterAid’s new report, ‘Wild Water’, looks at the impact of catastrophic weather events (“wild water”) on rural populations living in poverty, where access to safe water is already difficult. WaterAid works with the world’s poorest communities to help them to become more resilient in times of catastrophe.
