In support of World Water Week, I’d like to share the following infographic, created by the University of Florida’s Environmental Management program.
This infographic highlights five water purification designs for developing countries, and also examines water related diseases, such as Malaria and Cholera. The graphic also details water purification solutions, such as solar purification and water purifying bicycles.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 748 million people lack access to uncontaminated drinking water sources. Moreover, WHO estimates that 1.8 billion people use a fecally contaminated drinking water source, 2.5 billion lack access to improved sanitation facilities and more than 840,000 people die from water related diseases annually.
