Access to safe water and sanitation is essential to human health, environmental sustainability and economic prosperity. This vital resource is under threat, making it crucial to address the challenges related to water, sanitation and hygiene for populations and water-related ecosystems. Achieving universal access to drinking water, sanitation and hygiene, and ensuring such services are safely managed; remain major challenges which meeting them is crucial to for further progress in health, education and poverty eradication. More than 2 billion people are affected by water stress, defined as the ratio of total freshwater withdrawn to total renewable freshwater resources above a threshold of 25 per cent, which will increase with population growth and the effects of climate change. Hygienic sanitation facilities are crucial for public health. As per the WHO, since 1990, the number of people gaining access to improved sanitation has risen from %54 to %68 but some 2.3 billion people still do not have toilets or improved latrines.
