The lack of clean drinking water is a major problem world wide. The World Health Organization says more than one billion people live in the areas where renewable water resources are not available.
The problem is especially serious in the Asian and the Pacific. A United Nations report says water availability in that area is the second lowest in the world after Africa. Nearly 700,000 people in the Asian and the Pacific lack safe drinking water.
The UN report notes that the world's poorest countries are also the ones that use the most water for agriculture. Agriculture uses about 80% of the water in the Asian-Pacific area. There has also been an increasing water use for industry. China and India more than triple their industrial water use between 1992 and 2002.
The lack of clean drinking water around the world forces millions of people to drink unsafe water. This leads to an increase in diseases like Diarrheal, the second leading cause of death in children under 5.
Floods, droughts, pollution, and climate change have created even more problems. The M Development goals for 2015 call for a 50% decrease in the number of people without safe drinking water and basic sanitation.

There has also been an increasing water used for industry. China and India more than tripled their industrial water use between nineteen ninety-two and two thousand two.

The lack of clean drinking water around the world forces millions of people to drink unsafe water. This leads to an increase in diseases like diarrhea, the second leading cause of death in children under five.

Floods, droughts, pollution and climate change have created even more problems. The melanian development goes for two thousand fifteen, call for a fifty percent decrease in the number of people without safe drinking water and basic sanitation.

Scientists, governments and aid organizaiions around the world are increasing their efforts to meet these goals. Still, the UN says there is much work to be done.

The researchers tested their deceleration process on a computer chip, the science of a posted stand. The chip removed ninety-nine percent of the salt and other harmful substances from water samples.
