Can you Picture a Water Secure World?

USAID’s Global Waters team invites readers, implementers, mission personnel, and other water professionals to help illustrate the next phase of USAID’s commitment to addressing the world’s water challenges as outlined in the newly released U.S. Government Global Water Strategy through photos. USAID is contributing to the Strategy through its Water and Development Plan by providing 15 million people with sustainable access to safe drinking water services and 8 million people with sustainable sanitation.

The #WaterSecureWorld photo contest will help highlight the many different people, places, and activities that are part of USAID's ongoing efforts to improve access to water supply, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH).

The winning photos will be announced and displayed with full credits on Global Waters on Medium and promoted on and Quality submissions may also be featured on the @USAIDWater Twitter feed, in advocacy day toolkits, and other water-related publications such as Water Currents, which collectively reach thousands of subscribers. Winners will also be featured on USAID's Global Waters Flickr page.
