Transcript of Access to Fresh Water

by Andy Pham Access to Fresh Water There are about 1 billion people in the world that don't have access to fresh water. Clean and accessible water is necessary for everyone.
Water is needed for washing, drinking, cooking, growing crops and for livestock. Here is a map of how many people can access fresh water around the world. Lack of access to fresh water can be caused by:
no rain

urban poverty
waste management
food and agriculture
