Come rain or shine, we all need clean water we can rely on.

Climate change is causing more floods that pollute water sources and longer droughts that dry up springs. We’re working globally to get communities a steady supply of clean water, whatever the weather.

771 million people

don't have clean water and climate change is making things worse.

We're collaborating with local partners to find the best solution for getting clean water to every global community.
