Improving Access to Clean Drinking Water


April 15, 2020

Water is essential to life, but water scarcity and access to clean drinking water is a major global issue, especially in developing countries. As the climate crisis unfolds, severe drought, such as the one that plagued Cape Town, South Africa, in 2018, will become an even greater problem.

One of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals aims to increase access to clean water and improve sanitation conditions. According to the UN, more than 80% of wastewater from human activities is discharged into waterways without pollution removal and three out of ten people lack access to safe drinking water. As a consequence, a death toll arises from preventable water and sanitation-related diseases.
