In this session, we will reveal the first-ever picture of how water insecurity experiences covary with climate events, using the first nationally representative geospatial data on water insecurity from 25 countries in the Gallup World Poll. We will lay out a framework for how climate change and water insecurity impact mental health, physical health, and nutrition, using burgeoning evidence from around the world. We will conclude by describing how water insecurity data have been used to advocate for policy and infrastructural change, using examples from Australia, Kenya, and Mexico.
