  • Read 3/3 of the #UnchartedWaters #comicbook series titled ""Shocks in the City."" In #cities, unreliable #water greatly impacts firms. A single water outage can reduce a firms revenue by more than 8%. And if that firm is in the informal sector, as many are in developing countries, sales decline by 35%, ruining #livelihoods and stagnating urban economic growth, like in the case of Luis. #EndPoverty #water #waterislife #wateraccess #development #education #SDGs #globalgoals #unitednations #fotooftheday #theweekoninstagram #investinpeople #inspiring #education4all #educationmatters #inspiration #artofvisuals #premiumposts #phenomenalshot #artofvisuals
  • Read 2/3 of the #UnchartedWaters #comicbook series titled ""Rainfall Is Destiny."" Droughts in early life shape destinies, and cause #families to suffer for #generations: as Imanis experience shows, #girls in rural areas who endure dry shocks in their first 1,000 days suffer from its impact their entire lives. Even worse, it affects the next generation: their #children are also more likely to be stunted and less healthy, perpetuating a vicious cycle of #poverty and ill-health. #EndPoverty #water #waterislife #wateraccess #development #education #SDGs #globalgoals #unitednations #fotooftheday #theweekoninstagram #investinpeople #inspiring #education4all #educationmatters #inspiration #artofvisuals #premiumposts #phenomenalshot #artofvisuals
  • Read 1/3 of the #UnchartedWaters #comicbook series titled ""Parched Farms, Shrinking Forests."" On #farms, #droughts ruin harvests and lead to destruction of #forests. Because of droughts, farmers like Dewi and Agus feel forced to clear more land to recoup their lost income. And when forests are destroyed, so are sources of #water, making an already bad situation worse. Across the world, produce lost because of failed crops could feed over 80 million people every year. #EndPoverty #developement #education #globalgoals #unitednations #fotooftheday #theweekoninstagram #investinpeople #inspiring #inspiration #artofvisuals #premiumposts #phenomenalshot #artofvisuals
