Water comes from clouds that refill surface water sources and recharge aquifers. Clouds do not form if forest cover has been cut out for charcoal, timber, cropland, mining, etc. From an international context, carbon trading credits are one pathway.

An effective path involved addressing the climate crisis while simultaneously addressing long term water security.
When we tie together the need for jobs and economic prosperity with climate stabilization, we step into a longer term planning paradigm.
