CLEAN WATER & SANITATION
Save Water, Save Life
What's the goal here?
To ensure access to safe water sources and sanitation for all.
Access to water, sanitation and hygiene is a human right, yet billions are still facing with daily chal- lenges accessing even the most basic of services. Around 1.8 billion people globally use a source of drinking water that is fecally contaminated. Some 2.4 billion people lack access to basic san- itation services, such as toilets or latrines. Water scarcity affects more than 4O per cent of the global population and is projected to rise. More than 80 per cent of wastewater result- ing from human activities is discharging into rivers or sea without any treat- ment, leading to pollution.
Water scarcity affects more than 40 percent of people, an alarming figure that is projected to rise as temperatures do. While substantial progress has been made in increasing access to clean drinking water and sanitation, millions of people—mostly in rural areas—still lack these basic services. Worldwide, one in three people do not have access to safe drinking water, two out of five people do not have a basic hand-washing facility with soap and water, and millions of people still practice open defecation.
