The indispensable right to water

  • 19 April 2018


Water is an indispensable resource, but also the site of many injustices around the world. In this episode we talk to Dr Cristy Clark, whose research on water rights in places like Manila, Michigan and Soweto, shows the effects of a distorted view of water. What leads to these distortions? How can they be remedied? And what happens when we don't act to protect the human right to water?
