CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION

Working to meet the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals 6

Clean, accessible water for all is an essential part of the world we want to live in and there is sufficient fresh water on the planet to achieve this. However, due to bad economics or poor infrastructure, millions of people including children die every year from diseases associated with inadequate water supply, sanitation and hygiene.

More than 1 billion people still do not have access to fresh water.

4 billion people lack access to basic sanitation services, such as toilets or latrines

Each day, nearly 1,000 children die due to preventable water and sanitation-related diarrheal diseases

In Cambodia we are partnering with water.org. Their WaterCredit Initiative® solution uses microfinancing in new ways to bring small, easily repayable loans to those who need access to affordable financing and resources to make household water and sanitation solutions a reality.

Water scarcity, poor water quality and inadequate sanitation negatively impact food security, livelihood choices and educational opportunities for poor families across the world. At the current time, more than 2 billion people are living with the risk of reduced access to freshwater resources and by 2050, at least one in four people is likely to live in a country affected by chronic or recurring shortages of fresh water. Drought in specific afflicts some of the world’s poorest countries, worsening hunger and malnutrition.

3 in 10 people lack access to safely managed drinking water services and 6 in 10 people lack access to safely managed sanitation facilities.

Water scarcity affects more than 40 percent of the global population and is projected to rise. Over 1.7 billion people are currently living in river basins where water use exceeds recharge.
