THE Challenge

Growing demand for water, increasing pollution, and poor treatment systems are making water scarcity a global reality - over 1 in 4 now lack access to safe drinking water.²

IMPACT

Investing in Water Security contributes towards 8 of the Sustainable Development Goals:

Increasing access to clean and affordable water supply will ensure reduction in diseases, deaths, and global health risks.
