Water. You turn on the tap and there it is. But what if it runs out? In this episode of the Water Series, we’ll learn about a water crisis event in Cape Town, South Africa. The city of four million people was projected to run out of water on April 12, 2018 – ‘Day Zero’. However, a collective response from the residents of Cape Town helped avert this crisis.
The Water Series is a podcast on various dimensions of water. Although it deeply considers issues of water scarcity, it goes beyond that, addressing more innovative perspectives, e.g. water as a human right, water as a weapon of war, water as a resource, etc. Additionally, the series seeks to explore existing and future solutions to the present water-related challenges. The Water Series is co-hosted by human rights lawyers Sonja Agata Bišćan and Zeyneb Kasmi and features expert interviews.
