Water Security

Today, 1.42 billion people – including 450 million children – live in areas of high or extremely high water vulnerability.

The Global Water Crisis

Eighty countries, representing 40 percent of the world’s population, are facing a water crisis.

    • 1 billion people in developing countries do not have access to clean water
    • 1.7 billion people do not have good sanitation
    • 25 million people die each year from drinking unclean water.

The United Nations predicts that by 2025, nearly half of the world’s population will be living in areas where water is scarce. The water crisis is already a serious constraint on sustainable human development.

Water Scarcity on the African continent



According to recent reports by the World Health Organization (WHO), 1.5 million children under the age of five die every year of diarrhea due to unsafe water, inadequate sanitation and lack of hygiene.

A lack of access to clean water results in millions of children in water scarce communities missing school each year to help their families walk miles to collect water.
