"Kunzvi Dam project to begin this year - Zimbabwe Situation"…
2/ Since 1996, the Kunzvi Dam project has been on the cards until we got into this water crisis because of poor planning, incompetence, corruption and laissez faire approach to critical issues that affect livelihoods. Water is a fundamental human right. #FixOurWater #SDG6

No words. #WaterCrisis
“40% of India’s population will have no access to drinking water by 2030, the report said.”
Good evening everyone. Some replies are mentioning climate refugees as a threat, or as something to motivate right-wing people to care about #ClimateBreakdown. I have [strong] thoughts about that 👇. Have a read first?
