Water And Sanitation

You will never solve poverty without solving water and sanitation.

Contaminated water and poor sanitation are linked to the transmission of diseases such as cholera, diarrhoea, dysentery, hepatitis A, typhoid, and polio. Absent, inadequate, or inappropriately managed water and sanitation services expose individuals to preventable health risks.

  • At least 892 million people continue to practice open defecation.
  • Women and girls are responsible for water collection in 80 percent of households without access to water on-premises.
  • Between 1990 and 2015, the proportion of the global population using an improved drinking water source has increased from 76 percent to 90 percent.
  • 2.4 billion people lack access to basic sanitation services, such as toilets or latrines.
  • More than 80 percent of wastewater resulting from human activities is discharged into rivers or the sea without any pollution removal.
  • Each day, nearly 1,000 children die due to preventable water and sanitation-related diarrheal diseases.
  • Approximately 70 percent of all water abstracted from rivers, lakes, and aquifers is used for irrigation.
