Video on Water Scarcity

Kopin, in collaboration with the Malta Water Association and Koperattiva Rurali Manikata, produced a short video on water scarcity in the framework of the ClimATE Change project. Malta is currently experiencing one of its driest winters, with less than half the average yearly rainfall. Climate change is known to exacerbate drought, making adaptation a crucial requirement. This video looks into potential solutions to this life threatening problem. Watch the video (in Maltese with English subtitles) here.
