But today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive.
Marginalized groups – women, children, refugees, indigenous peoples, disabled people and many others – are often overlooked, and sometimes face discrimination, as they try to access and manage the safe water they need.
Whoever you are, wherever you are, water is your human right.
Together with access to sanitation, safe water underpins public health and is therefore critical to sustainable development and a stable and prosperous world.
We cannot move forward as a global society while so many people are living without safe water.
