    I am writing a dissertation looking into solar powered desalination as a solution to the water crisis, I came across a couple of initiatives of interest which could be worth interviewing: LQUID (http://www.lquid.co), WaterFX (http://waterfx.co), TAP (http://transafricapipeline.org) which is working with The Great Green Wall (http://www.greatgreenwall.org).

      Hi Hannah! Thanks, and yes that’s really interesting. I’ve just added a sources section to this page now with your suggestions.

      Harry is actually looking into desalination as part of his focus on tech solutions so that will be really useful to him. He’s not in the office this week but may well be in touch next week.

      As always, if you want to start a story based on your new research please do go ahead. And good luck with the dissertation…

    This is an excellent choice of topic for Wikitribune. Water rights (land, too) will be a defining issue for our country and culture during the next 100 years or more.

    “Government policy” is one of the sub- topics on the list to explore. In the US, there is a complicated and unconnected statutory regime that governs the use and allocation of water – federal, state, and local.

    Another topic could be: actions taken by local officials whose municipalities have suffered low-water and drought conditions.

    Another good book about “water” is The Big Thirst by Charles Fishman. The book was published in 2017. It is a thoughtful, pretty fast read, and well sourced book.
