Our journey through water justice concepts brings us to Latin America, where large water supplies are met with pollution, and areas in desperate need of investment are met with corruption. Through Central and South America we can observe where policy actions are lacking, but great research and incentives are seeking to ameliorate water stresses. While Mexico experiences political entropy surrounding the regulation of water resources, Brazil struggles to motivate incentives to decrease water demand. Argentina experiences similar issues but is also home to some exemplary action in the fight for human rights to water and sanitation. Tim and Kat are joined by a few guests to discover the unique challenges facing these parts of the world and explore the possible resolutions for water justice in Latin America.
