End Water PovertyIt’s World Water Day today, which is especially significant this year as it’s also the International Year of Sanitation. But, rather than me rant on again about the 1.1 billion people who don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water or the 2.6 billion people who don’t have access to sanitation causing disease and death on a catastrophic scale, I thought I’d drop you a link to radio 4 where you can listen to the development expert and writer, Maggie Black, and Lydia Zigomo of WaterAid, talk far more eloquently about this most fundamental of development issues.
