Water is a basic necessity of life, and it may seem inconceivable to imagine living without it. But the stark reality is that many people around the world do. The availability of fresh water for drinking and sanitation poses an urgent and challenging problem, particularly in many developing countries.
The World Health Organization (WHO) reported in March 20101 that over 2.6 billion people, or about 39 per cent of the world’s population, live without improved sanitation facilities; in other words, without a proper latrine. Furthermore, WHO estimated that about 1.1 billion people across the globe—approximately 17 per cent of the world’s population—lacked access to safe and improved sources of drinking water.
