This film, produced by the World Development Movement (WDM), gives a brief overview of the water privatization throughout the world. It is called “Dirty Aid – Dirty Water” because as entities like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund provided loans to developing countries, often times they did so with the stipulation that the country receiving the funding must agree to participate in a water-privatization program. Privatization of water supplies in these countries has seen many ill effects including significant increases in water prices making water less available those in need.
