Making investment in water & sanitation not just has moral case but economic as wel
What targets should the world set for water and sanitation? 2.5 billion people – almost half the developing world – lack a basic latrine and 1 billion have to resort to what is politely known as open defecation. In India, almost 600 million have to defecate in the open. This large problem was also addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who, in his last Independence Day speech, stated the government was targeting sanitation for all in 10 years.
