National Geographic has a three-and-a-half-minute video on the Cape Town water crisis. As written in the YouTube description, “The profound water crisis in Cape Town, South Africa is affecting the rich and poor, tourists and hosts. In this short doc produced by the German political advocacy group Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung, Tadzio Müller demonstrates just what it means to live on 50 liters (13.2 gallons) of water per day. In a city where the underprivileged already faced insufficient water resources, the middle class, the government, environmentalists, and engineers are all focused on how to get by—and how to prevent this disaster in the future. But, as Müller notes, current trends mean similar shortages could arise in other places around the world.”
