Wastewater, Health and Human well being - Investing in water supply and sanitation

Year: 2010 Author: UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Investment to improve basic access to a safe water source and sanitation (WHO scenario A) can have a significant return with the largest impact on health in particular averting diarrhoea cases and time saved (increasing productivity). Urbanized areas provide a large proportion of GDP, therefore the future development of developing countries is dependent on the productivity of growing urban areas.
