The Dirty Water Infographic Shows the Disparities and Problems

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. Stats for Shocking Hydration Visualizations Trending: Older & Chilly
