Join For Water guarantees water for people and nature alike, today and tomorrow. We operate in 9 countries, together with various different partners.
We tackle challenges at the source: resilient freshwater ecosystems form the basis for the right to water. We depend on them, for our drinking water, water for agriculture and food. Furthermore, they also offer protection against floods and droughts.
Sustainable access to water is not guaranteed everywhere. Those who do not have access to water do not find a way out of poverty. Whoever has clean water can go to school, be healthier and earn a better living.
The deterioration of water-rich ecosystems is a major cause for the lack of water. Deforestation leads to drying up of the soil, swamps are drained, pollution reduces the water quality. Climate change also brings nature out of balance, which results in a global water crisis. Moreover, rich countries, through their enormous consumption, are seizing freshwater resources, including in low-income countries.
Together with partners in Africa, Latin America and Belgium, we are working towards solutions. We protect and strengthen endangered ecosystems, we give access to water, we learn from each other, we influence government policy regarding water and create awareness among the public as well as businesses.
Everyone has the right to water. Join us!
