So, when we start talking about how to address the global water crisis, we must think about context – Who are the people being affected? How are they affected? What region of the world do they live in? How does the community function? What are the needs of the individuals in the community?
While there are some great ideas being thrown around, we need to get rid of any notion of a one-size-fits-all “solution” to this problem. This problem will affect each location and group of people differently, and we must understand context.
With that said, though, this is not a problem that can be fixed on an individual level. This is a problem that must be tackled collectively to find any lasting solutions. We have to work together.
