THE CHALLENGES

Lack of Access to Clean Water and Sanitation

Waterborne illnesses like pneumonia stemming from poor water quality and inadequate sanitation account for nearly 80 percent of all infectious diseases in the developing world. They cause the deaths of more people globally than all forms of violence, including war. Moreover, they are the leading cause of child mortality in Africa, also contributing to long-term developmental problems in children who survive their battles with sickness.

Making matters worse, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services have become increasingly important since the COVID-19 pandemic hit. And with the effects of the virus placing enormous pressure on already strained water service providers across the developing world, human health and overall well-being are at even greater risk.

A lack of access to clean water and sanitation threatens public health, increases poverty, stifles education and impedes economic development.


OUR APPROACH

How We Tackle the Global Water Crisis

Informed by decades of local, on-the-ground experience in developing countries, our roster of WASH specialists maximize our ability to affect change through proven real-world solutions, utility management and technical expertise, sustainable financing and collaborative partnerships.
