Clean and resilient water supplies

We all need water — to drink, to bathe, to grow food.

But in many parts of the world, water from rivers, melting snow and underground is becoming increasingly scarce as droughts intensify and populations grow.

EDF is making water supplies more resilient to climate change, population growth and other pressures so people and wildlife have clean water supplies for generations to come.
