Developing a source for safe drinking water is of course the basic, essential first step.
Improved water access is important…
However let’s not forget the second part of the challenge; reducing water hauling and related social/economic issues. It is commonly agreed that in order to reduce poverty in developing countries one of the keys for success is to make safe drinking water available AND accessible. Water fetching, hauling or transporting is a major concern… simple solutions for this challenge typically consist of improving ways to haul water. We celebrate, rightfully, the first step of installation of a safe drinking water source in a community, but we have not taken the necessary second step of expanding distribution systems to allow or promote Improved Access to Water.
