The Dirty Water infographic illustrates the disparity in which we access clean drinking water. Sub-Saharan Africa ranks as the worst region in terms of access to clean drinking water, with just over half the population having access; at the other end of the spectrum are the Industrialized countries with a 100 percent access rate.
Another interesting fact about the global water supply that the Dirty Water infographic drew my attention to was that 70 percent of fresh water is unattainable -- that is a staggering amount of water. The Dirty Water infographic itself is clear and well laid out.
The UN claims that a lack of sanitary water supply kills more people annually than war. That claim alone should push the issue of sanitary water access into the public discourse.
