Bangladesh: water service for Dhaka’s slums
Every year, some 400,000 new residents arrive in Dhaka, Bangladesh. They come from rural areas, often affected by climate change, and settle in the city’s heaving slums. Currently about 4 million slum dwellers lack access to basic sanitation. Videojournalist Stephen Sapienza discusses efforts to connect slum residents with an official supply of clean water.
