Wieviele Menschen haben keinen Zugang zu einer optimalen Wasserquelle?

The definition of an improved drinking water source includes “piped water on premises (piped household water connection located inside the user’s dwelling, plot or yard), and other improved drinking water sources (public taps or standpipes, tube wells or boreholes, protected dug wells, protected springs, and rainwater collection).” Note that access to drinking water from an improved source does not ensure that the water is safe or adequate, as these characteristics are not tested at the time of survey. But improved drinking water technologies are more likely than those characterized as unimproved to provide safe drinking water and to prevent contact with human excreta.

In 2020, 6% of the world population did not have access to an improved water source.

In the map shown we see the share of people across the world that do not have access to improved water sources.
