Water Scarcity in India: A Human Crisis I India Loud & Clear I EP 7

This week in India Loud & clear we will talk about the least addressed crisis in India, the water scarcity.

Do you know 163 million Indians do not have access to clean water?

The ways water is prioritized changed dramatically over the years. Industries overrule farmers. Urban claims more water than rural. The rich take from the poor. Lifestyles dominate livelihoods. The scarcity of water is only strengthening these trends.
 
But a shortage doesn’t always make a crisis. So what does?
 
It’s the disease India suffers most from...inequality.
