Solutions for a Thirsty Planet
donate-buttonWater sustains all life on earth, yet it is too often contaminated, fought over, and misused. More than 663 million people lack access to safe drinking water. Recognizing water is a precious and vital resource, the Pacific Institute has devoted decades to leading global efforts to create equitable access to clean water for humans and ecosystems.

New threats from a changing climate, growing populations, and increasing conflict over water across the globe make our impartial and science-based approach more critical than ever.

It’s time to think differently about water. With your contribution to the Rapid Response Fund, we will actively promote innovative solutions to the most critical water challenges.
