Without water, life cannot flourish. Without water, death will surge. And even with access to water, if that water is not clean it can still lead to death and/or major discomfort. 1 in 3 people in the world do not have access to clean drinking water. This data was not collected in 2019. The most valuable necessity of life is not available to everybody in the world. Water is seen as a human right and The United Nations Development Program would like to oversee more water in more homes. Not just water, clean sanitized water. No more thirst will be tolerated. The UNDP recognizes this thousand-year-old issue needs to end.
In the United States, we believe all citizens deserve access to clean water. The United States has a public water system that provides water to 87% of Americans every day. There are also many privately owned water systems as well as private wells that help to provide Americans with water. With the help of many state and local authorities, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) helps to provide clean and sanitized water to citizens around the country. The United States has lent a lot of time and effort to water around the world and will continue to. We have promoted new sciences and technology. The United States has proudly funded millions of dollars towards UNDP projects since it was created. Overall, The United States wants to see more countries less thirsty and wants to eradicate the problem.
The United States would recommend other, struggling countries provide a government-organized water supply system, and if this is not possible, provide fundings to a private organization to help make one. If anything, a water system like this could stop millions of people from being thirsty and make profit for the government to fund even more to end this problem. We will continue to provide global assistance until every country has access to clean, sanitary water.
