March 1, 2019 — The Economist’s international editor Simon Long travelled to two WaterAid projects in India last month and has published a special report on water scarcity.

"Thirsty World" is a six-part series which takes a look at how climate change, population growth and poor management are bringing the global water crisis to a breaking point. 

WaterAid is excited to be a part of this comprehensive look at the global water crisis. We are encouraged to see the water and sanitation crisis is increasingly seen as a major threat to human and economic development.
