The climate crisis is a water crisis

Climate change is making life even harder for people already struggling to get clean water - especially women and girls. It's time for their voices to be heard. 

1 in 10 people don't have clean water close to home.

200million hours is spent by women and girls walking for water each day.

As climate change makes clean water even more scarce, this number will continue to rise, holding women and girls back from achieving their full potential.
