¿What are
the Water Factories?

Water Factories is a journalistic coverage which investigates the impact and risks in water sources in Colombia. Moreover, it shows how important the communities are for its maintenance and recovery.  

We started this project by narrating the story of the Santurbán cloud forest (or páramo), which you can check out in our coverage section. We want to keep filling out the map with you, while supporting more stories and places.

Join this campaign by supporting the coverage on the Bogotá river, from its birth to its most polluted zone.
