Clean water needs

This week, Consumers International (CI) is highlighting a global challenge: 1 in 6 of the world's people does not have an adequate supply of safe water. Also, the World Bank reports:

• Two-fifths of the world lives without proper sanitation.

• In the developing world, 9 of 10 don't have their wastewater treated.

• Every day, another 200,000 people get access to basic sanitation. But to reach the World Bank's 2015 goal - reducing by half the number of people without sanitation - 300,000 will have to gain access daily.

We want to hear, did we miss an angle we should have covered? Should we come back to this topic? Or just give us a rating for this story. We want to hear from you.
