FDC’s Water Program works to strengthen resistance to water privatization policies. In recent years, plans to institute wide-ranging reforms in the water sector that would open it up to private investors and corporations have gained momentum. These, along with water concessionaires’ attempts to raise water rates and a renewed push to build new dams in various parts of the country pose serious threats to the people’s right to water.

FDC partners with other organizations and supports local struggles to promote alternatives based on a framework that views water as a right, a vital resource and an essential part of the commons.
