Drought action video | #droughtaction

This video, directed and shot by Nachiket Pangare (Nash), covers the issue of water scarcity that is looming in many parts of the world. Water scarcity affects more than 40% of the global population, especially in Africa, Asia and Latin America. With agriculture accounting for over 70% of the world’s water consumption; food production expected to double within the next 10 years; and groundwater being depleted at an astonishing rate, water scarcity problems are set to rise. Efficiency and desalination are emerging solutions to this global crisis.

The seven-minute video premiered at the 2016 World Water Congress and Exhibition and puts a human face to the statistics, showing the ways that people in India use and transport water for their essential needs.
