WHY ARE PEOPLE BEING LEFT BEHIND WITHOUT SAFE WATER?
People are left behind without safe water for many different reasons. The following are some of the ‘grounds for discrimination’ that cause certain people to be particularly disadvantaged when it comes to accessing water:
• Sex and gender
• Race, ethnicity, religion, birth, caste, language, and
• Disability, age and health status
• Property, tenure, residence, economic and social
Other factors, such as environmental degradation, climate change, population growth, conflict, forced displacement and migration flows can also disproportionately affect marginalized groups through impacts on water.
