Thirst

Video | 22 July, 2013

A short documentary exploring the effects of water shortage on people in Inner Mongolia. For ten years, the Chinese state-run organisation Shenhua has sucked this land dry, pumping the water out of these beautiful grasslands to use in fuel production. Once an abundant farming area, this region has become a barren desert, resulting in thousands of people losing their homes and livelihood.

In this short documentary exploring the effects of water shortage on people in Inner Mongolia, Greenpeace East Asia reveals that the Shenhua Group, the world's biggest coal producer by volume, is exploiting water resources in Inner Mongolia at a shocking scale.
