Water, The Problem and the Opportunity - July 14th
One of the largest and most pressing problems facing humanity - 1 billion people, one out of six, lack safe drinking water. 1.8 million children die annually due to a lack of safe drinking water. Half the hospital beds in the world are filled with people with water-borne illnesses. Proven, affordable solutions exist today that can provide a lifetime of sustainable safe drinking water. Safe water sends children back to school, empowers women, improves community health and fosters economic development. Lisa Nash, the CEO of the Blue Planet Network, discusses how these goals can be achieved.
