Reliable, clean water is an essential part of life. But what would you do if your community was hit by a storm, damaging essential infrastructure? Or shifting rainfall patterns or longer droughts meant water was more scarce? That’s why Pacific Islanders in Tuvalu are trialling solar distillation farms that can produce 75 litres of drinking water per day, as well as tackling water storage at the household level. Climate Curious speaks with Engineers Without Borders New Zealand’s Emma Coombe in Tuvalu. The learning? The more storage, the better!
