Solutions for a Thirsty Planet

Through December 31st, your donation will be doubled thanks to a $60,000 match from our generous board members.

Water sustains all life on earth, yet it is too often contaminated, fought over, and misused.

More than 2.1 billion people lack access to safe drinking water at home.

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. We publish groundbreaking research and outreach, bring together diverse stakeholders to make progress on critical water issues, and catalyze global business action on water stewardship in support of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

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