  • Title:  Scarcity of Fresh Water in Shrimp Farm Areas
  • Description:  Women of Shyamnagar carrying drinking water from the pond. Scarcity of fresh water is acute in the areas due to high salinity. People from these regions have been facing a crisis in drinking water for many years now. This has resulted from shrimp farming which pushes brakish water far inside the coast adding more salt to the ground water. In the absence of any alternative means of getting water, the people have no option but to use the unsafe and harmful saline water for drinking and for other household purposes. Satkhira, Khulna, Bangladesh. April 4 2007.
