Almost one-third of the world’s population lacks access to safe and reliable water

This isn’t just an inconvenience; it’s a harsh reality and one that traps people in extreme poverty and cripples community development. But there is something that can be done to end this crisis. The Global Water Center’s vision is to bring the number of people affected by the global water crisis from 2 billion to zero. Learn more, and join us in ending water poverty.

Our Approach

The global water crisis is both enormous and urgent. Many organizations worldwide are working hard to combat it, but it’s too big to tackle alone. The problem persists, and people continue to die simply because not enough people are doing the right thing, the right way, together. The resources and technology exist to end the global water crisis, but to truly make an impact, we need to work together with a comprehensive strategy. This crisis demands a collaborative, global response that engages and enables safe water organizations around the world, scaling their impact and rapidly increasing the number of sustainable, safe water providers.

The Global Water Center’s strategy is to catalyze Collective Action, drawing other organizations together to do what no one organization can do on its own. The Global Water Center can be relied upon to incentivize, mobilize and aggregate the work of capable and effective water providers who consistently deliver safe and reliable water in communities facing extraordinary water poverty.
