The article focuses on the funding of projects concerned with water recovery, treatment and other general water studies aimed at improving access to clean drinking water by the National Geographic Global Exploration Fund, with Bayer AG. The projects selected for support show how much can be achieved with very little investment, says Klaus Liedtke, editor-in-chief of National Geographic Germany.
