HSBC and WaterAid have launched a new film showcasing the impacts of climate change on access to clean water, and the knock on effects for small businesses in Dacope, Bangladesh. WaterAid and and HSBC have been working together in Bangladesh since 2012 to provide climate-resilient clean water resources.
Climate resilience is a core part of WaterAid's work in Bangladesh as part of the HSBC Water Programme, and technologies such as the Water ATMs mentioned in the video are one example of the work being done to reduce the impacts of climate change.

Over the past five years, WaterAid and HSBC have worked together to transform lives in six countries: Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Ghana and Nigeria. Together, we have reached 1.65 million people with clean water and 2.5 million people with sanitation and hygiene. The work funded by HSBC Water Programme allows communities to build skills, increase their productivity and future-proof economies of the regions they live in.
