Abstract

Although water scarcity doesn’t sound like a 21st century problem, more than 1.2 million people die every year directly related to the lack of access to safe water. Malnutrition, lack of sanitation, and other diseases can bump those numbers even higher. An interesting question that very few might ask is: what are the causes for the lack of access to water? There are several answers to those questions, and some of them are related to geography and some of them are not, or maybe both.

The Geographical (and almost) Non-Geographical Advantages on Access to Water Resources

Although water scarcity doesn’t sound like a 21st century problem, more than 1.2 million people die every year directly related to the lack of access to safe water. Malnutrition, lack of sanitation, and other diseases can bump those numbers even higher. An interesting question that very few might ask is: what are the causes for the lack of access to water? There are several answers to those questions, and some of them are related to geography and some of them are not, or maybe both.
