Our Climate Fight

In summer 2021, ahead of COP26 in Glasgow, Basile Ouedrageo wrote to the UK government about the impacts of climate change that he'd witnessed where he lives and works in Burkina Faso.

An incredible 19,148 celebrities, cross-party politicians and WaterAid supporters added their names to his open letter, calling on Boris Johnson and Liz Truss to listen to the people most affected by our changing climate.

Together, we asked the government to ensure at least one third of their climate budget is invested directly in local projects that bring clean water. With reliable clean water, communities can build resilience and take charge of their lives.
