India: Tackling a decade-long water crisis
Kanu’s village in Alwar, India, is next to a valley that was once a water reservoir. Now it is parched farmland. Kanu is three years old and yet to understand the impact of the water crisis that is threatening his home. Kanu’s father, Narayan, lives and works in Jaipur, around 200 kilometres from the village, in order to provide for his family. The water crisis has limited the farming season to just a few months forcing Narayan to work odd jobs as a daily wage labourer to earn a living.
