World Water Day 2015 is this weekend. This year’s event celebrates the vital role that water plays in fostering sustainable development. But it’s also important to remember that, just as levels of economic and social development are uneven worldwide, so too is access to safe drinking water and sanitation uneven. This inequality of water creates serious consequences for hundreds of millions of people and makes the fight for truly sustainable development that much more difficult.
As this infographic from Seametrics demonstrates, we live in a world with two groups of people: the water rich and the water poor.
