Demand an end to water injustice in Goa

Donate to this campaign

goaOur research indicates that there is growing concern among the people of Goa about the ways in which weakly monitored consumption and irresponsible disposal of water by hotels and resorts are:

  • depleting groundwater and wells
  • polluting waterways and beaches
  • appropriating public water supplies to the detriment of communities and livelihoods, including small-scale tourism entrepreneurs
  • forcing households to abandon wells and depend on limited and unreliable piped supplies
  • undermining the long-term sustainability of tourism development in Goa, upon which so many livelihoods depend

We are calling for the right to water and sanitation of local communities to be prioritised over water for luxury tourism development and tourist leisure.
