Geographies of Water
Peru, one of the countries with the most outstanding water availability, presents a scenario where access to clean water has become alarmingly tricky.
According to the National Water Authority, the highlands and the Amazon had 97% of water availability, but there inhabit only 30% of the population. This situation is worse because of the degradation of the upper watersheds, land use legislation, loss of wetlands, deforestation, legal and illegal mining, and global temperature increase. Geographies of water aim to connect different stories around water in Peru, looking for a broad understanding between territories.
