Millions of children under five die every year due to toxic germ-infest unsafe drinking water. This mean that almost four babies a minute die from a lack of water according to UN-Water’s estimations.
In the 2014 World Water Report released on the eve of World Water Day, the UN said that 768 million people do not have adequate access to water, 2.5 billion do not have access to improved sanitation.
Such coordinated policies, according to the UN, include revising pricing practices to ensure that water and energy are sold at rates that reflect their real cost and environmental impact more accurately. Furthermore, the UN argued that the massive scope of investments needed to develop durable infrastructure requires that the private sector play a major role in supplementing public expenditure.
Essentially, the UN argues that if we do not allow the corporations to control water and price gouge the customers, that the world will continue to see massive death related to a lack of clean, usable water. In short, the UN is advocating for corporate control over all of water.
