dc.description.abstractWater and poverty are inextricably linked. Poor access to water and insufficient sanitation affect the health of the poor, their food security, and their prospects for making a living. In Asia and the Pacific region -- home to nearly 900 million of the world’s poorest people -- one in three people does not have safe drinking water and one in two lacks adequate sanitation.
