SDG 12: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

How Just a Drop contributes

Less than 3% of the world’s water is fresh, and therefore drinkable. With 2.5% frozen in Antarctica, the Arctic and glaciers, the remaining 0.5% covers all of the world's fresh water needs. Unfortunately humans are polluting water faster than nature can recycle and purify water in rivers and lakes. With 884 million people lacking access to clean safe water, water conservation and proper utilisation is critical to universal access to clean water. 

In Kenya, rains fall so quickly and in such a short space of time that most of the water runs off the land - rather than sinking into the ground and stored in the aquifer below. Our rainwater harvesting solutions in Kenya catch and store rainfall, providing a sustainable source of clean water for communities.
