783 million without drinking water!

Affordable water for poor thing!

Much is being done but not enough!

South Africa for example, had considerable success. During 1994 only 59 percent of the population had access to clean drinking water, there were already 93 percent in 2010. These figures are verifiable and must not be doubted for good reason!

A closer look reveals, however, that there is at least mainly in rural areas is to pump that up to 200 meters have been installed by the houses away.

The water quality is, in most cases, not the WHO standards and can not be described as “drinking water”.

11 percent of world population ie 783 million people (According to UNICEF and WHO), still live without improved access to safe drinking water, mostly in the rural areas of Sub-Saharan Africa. These regions are difficult to reach.

In fact, there are far more than 1 billion people who lack clean drinking water!

It is expensive to provide for them. In 25 countries, the United Nations is turning, every day 16 million women, men and children 6 million 4 million hours for the daily supply of drinking water.

What UNICEF and WHO say about this problem?

Nearly 90 percent of people have access to clean water, say UNICEF and WHO. By 2015, 88 percent of all people should be supplied with drinking water and in 1990 the figure was 76 percent. This means that today more than two billion people in 1990 will benefit from drinking water??
The published figures have to be questioned!

These data also say nothing about the quality of drinking water, and certainly nothing about rationing over whether the water for the population is also affordable!
The Millennium Development Goal for drinking water supplies from there to halve the number of people without access to safe drinking water between 1990 and 2015. There were insufficient data to assess progress along the way. So they resorted to an auxiliary indicator called “enhanced access” back. That improved access is already spoken, when a household has access to a source or a connection, the safe water supplies. The house can be and house-connections, public water tabs, protected wells and rainwater collectors.

Safe water is not the same as drinking water!

Economic growth in China and India helped in these countries to build infrastructure for an improved drinking water supply.never less, further progress can not be financed by an economic growth is, in all these developing countries with 0 illusory growth.

In the poorest countries only 11 percent of the population  are connected to the water supply, in the rural regions, there are only 3 percent!

Who will pay for it?

Privatizations help, it gives rise to new risks.

Have been a World Bank study from 2009 reported that nine percent of the contracts with the private sector (These are part of big companies, which can be called “water multinationals’ call) for poor performance and overpriced water prices cancelled early or not renewed, the most of them in Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America. Of 65 countries surveyed are over 24 again went to public drinking water supply.

During the first five water multinationals divided 80 percent of the market in developing countries, they now got competition from national companies. These are better than “multi’ smaller towns and villages provide locally. Its market share now stands at 40 percent.

But it must be ensured that the water rates for the population are also affordable!

Poor Sanitation

Today only 63 percent of the world population have access to sanitation facilities. Than 75 percent target by 2015 by UNICEF and  WHO are given. The Rio +20 Summit must help to achieve the targets??

Another issue about which I will report separately.

The undisputed fact is that more than 40,000 people starve to death day by day. 5,000 children are dying day by day, because they have no clean drinking water.

And tens of thousands die daily additionally indirect consequences that dirty, and (have to) drink by bacteria and viruses, heavy metals, feces (Sanitation Topic!) and other contaminants, contaminated water!
