Water scarcity is spreading and intensifying in many regions of the world, with dire consequences for local communities, economies, and freshwater ecosystems. Current approaches tend to rely on policies crafted at the state or national level, which on their own have proved insufficient to arrest water scarcity. We worked with Brian Richter, a global leader in water science and conservation, to help tell the story of Sustainable Waters, a global water education organization that shares accurate and up-to-date information about water scarcity, news of water shortages, and information and tools for solving water problems.
