Description

This is a chance for our global contributors to get involved with a good cause, organisation and project. NFP The International Water Centre - is looking to help educate those all around the world of the various water "challenges" that are happening in different locations, on a local level.

 

Our primary goal is to educate people of the challenges around water (any part of the whole water cycle) around the world (in either rural, community or urban settings and in both developing and developed nations).

 

We're after stories from your own hometown on the water situation and the challenges that your location is facing. It may be water hygiene, usage, etc. We want to promote a holistic understanding of what's going on around the world with water.

 

Here's a snapshot of what we're thinking:

 

 

 

1.Household water security:

 

Access to piped supply

 

Access to sanitation

 

Water hygiene

 

 

 

2. Economic water security:

 

Agricultural water use

 

Industrial water use

 

Energy water use

 

Broad economy impacts

 

 

 

3. Urban water security:

 

Water supply

 

Wastewater treatment

 

Drainage/floods

 

River health

 

 

 

4. Environmental water security

 

River health

 

Hydrological alterations

 

Governance of the environment

 

 

 

5. Resilience to water-related disasters

 

Floods and wind storms

 

Drought

 

Storm surges and coast floods

 

 

 

We want stories we haven't seen before. And we want them from all over the world.
