Women representing the communities of Somkhele and Fuleni in South Africa gathered at a Water Assembly in Kwazulu Natal with a clear message about their experiences of water scarcity. Women in these drought-stricken communities have been heavily impacted by coal mining and extractives industries, resulting in a clear water shortage, along with diminishing livestock and farming opportunities. Supported by WoMin, local women presented a clear set of demands to local stakeholders to inform strategies addressing the water scarcity. Photo credit: Heidi Augestad
