Thirsting for Justice: Transparency and Poor People’s Struggle for Clean Water in Indonesia, Mongolia and Thailand 

By: The Access Initiative, World Resources Institute

This resource from The Access Initiative (TAI) and World’s Resource Institute (WRI’s) is called Thirsting for Justice, Transparency and Poor People’s Struggle for Clean Water in Indonesia, Mongolia and Thailand. This publication looks at the right to information and access to clean water. The report reveals that, like many Asian countries, the governments of Indonesia, Mongolia and Thailand are not effectively telling the public if the water they rely on for drinking, bathing, farming, and fishing is polluted or dangerously toxic. It finds that, despite passing strong “right to know” laws, these governments are putting Asia’s poorest communities at risk by not providing the water pollution information that people need. It includes results from information requesting process and also looks at proactive disclosure.
