Climate change – Water Crisis and Women health and education.

As I am working on this issue, “Water Crisis” for last 15 years, seeing that many of our fellow citizens in Bangladesh still struggle to access clean and safe drinking water my heart feels heavy.

This year, the theme of World Water Day is “Valuing Water”, highlighting the fundamental importance of water in our daily lives, and the need to recognize and appreciate its true value.

Bangladesh is home to over 160 million people, making it one of the most densely populated countries in the world. With limited freshwater resources, the country is struggling to meet the growing demands of its population, resulting in a severe water crisis.

One of the primary factors contributing to the water crisis in Bangladesh is climate change. The country is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, such as rising sea levels, increased frequency and intensity of floods, and droughts. These extreme weather events have a direct impact on the availability and quality of water resources in the country.

The rapid growth of the population is another contributing fact, which has led to increased demands for water for drinking, agriculture, and industrial purposes. As a result, the groundwater levels in many areas have been depleted.

The lack of access to water has a disproportionate impact on women and children, who are often responsible for fetching water for their families. Women, in particular, may have to walk several miles each day to fetch water, which not only puts their health at risk but also limits their opportunities for education and economic empowerment.

As a society, we must take action to address this issue. On this World Water Day, let us commit to making clean and safe water accessible to all people in Bangladesh.

In this corner of the world people are fighting to get a pot of drinkable water. Their lives have collapsed in need of getting a pot of fresh water. People are experiencing severe thirst which may never come to an end if “Water”- could not save by Human.

Dear friends,

For the past 15 years, I have been dedicating my efforts towards understanding and working towards the water crisis that plagues many unprivileged people in our country. The situation is dire, and it is crucial that we recognize the value of this precious resource before it’s too late.

It is heart-wrenching to witness the daily suffering of those affected by the water crisis. However, I remain hopeful that by bringing attention to this issue, we can work towards a solution and prevent further harm.

I am grateful to all those who have taken the time to acknowledge the severity of the water crisis. It is only through our collective efforts that we can make a meaningful impact and ensure a better future for generations to come.

With love and light,

GMB Akash

"I see the beauty of people and the human soul in the pictures I take. And though the circumstances of some of the people I portray may be grim, back-breaking, depraved, the people themselves are always remarkable characters and souls" For me Photography is my language, to access, to communicate, to identify and mostly to make it hear. Through photography I only jot down my heart’s language. The best part about being a photographer is that I’m able to articulate the experiences of the voiceless and to bring their identities to the forefront which gives meaning and purpose to my own life.
