Water has become increasingly inaccessible to a vast majority of people in the world today.  The 3rd World Water Forum1 observed that the demand for water is increasing at an exponential rate relative to the world’s population growth rate and poverty is the most significant factor that interferes with meeting that demand.  Challenges arising from lack of access to water cut across societies.  According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are 2.2 million diarrhoea deaths related to unsafe water, sanitation, and hygiene every year.  Those at greatest risk of waterborne disease are infants and young children, people who are debilitated or living under unsanitary conditions and the elderly.
