MILLENNIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS (MDG'S) 1. Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger. 2. Achieve Universal Primary Education 3. Promote Gender Equality and Empower 5. Improve Maternal Health 6. Combat HIV/AIDS, Malaria, and other diseases Women 7. Ensure Environmental Sustainability 8. Global Partnership for Development 4. Reduce Child Mortality TO BE EFFECTIVE, THEY ALL REQUIRE ACCESS TO GLEAN WATER AND SANITATION. IN 2015, THE DEVELOPMENTAL COALS ARE BEING RE-EVALUATED. WE WANT TO ENSURE WASH WATER SANITATION HYGIENE AND TO 1. ACCELERATE THOSE WITHOUT ACCESS TO BASIC SANITATION. 2. PROVIDE UNIVERSAL BASIC SANITATION BY 2020. 3. BETTER MONITOR FUNDING, MAKING SURE IT MAKES IT TO THOSE MOST IN NEED OF HELP. 4. PUSH FOR THE HIGHER PRIORITIZATION OF BASIC SANITATION AND WATER SUPPLY COVERAGE. BECAUSE AT THE CURRENT RATE, MOG'S WONT BE REACHED UNTIL 2049 WITH DIARRHEA CURRENTLY: KILLING 1 IN 8 PEOPLE WORLDWIDE LACK ACCESS TO A BASIC IMPROVED WATER SOURCE. MORE CHILDREN YEARLY THAN AIDS, MEASLES, AND MALARIA COMBINED. THAT'S A CHILD DYING EVERY 20 SECONDS FROM A WATER-RELATED ILLNESS. OR 5,000 A DAY, THAT'S 20 AIRPLANES FULL OF CHILDREN, DYING. WHICH ARE 1.5 MILLION CHILDREN A YEAR. WHAT IF ALL OF MANHATTAN DIED FROM WATER-RELATED ILLNESSES? OR GREATER MANCHESTER? WASH WOULD BE A PRIORITY THEN, RIGHT? THE TRUTH IS, MORE PEOPLE ARE WITHOUT WASH THAN IN 1990. • 1990: 24 BILLION WITHOUT ACCESS TO SANITATION. • 2010: 2.5 BILLION WITHOUT ACCESS TO SANITATION. WASH IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT AFFECTS EVERTHING ELSE ECONOMY: $260 billion dollars (tourism, agriculture, industry) are lost every year due to water related illnesses. E Col And $32.2 billion in investment could completely solve sanitation problems. That's a $4 return for every $l invested. GENDER EQUALITY: 152 million hours are spent every day by women and girls gathering water. That's 17,351 years of collective life, per day. And 526 million women STILL have to use toilets in the open. That's 1/7th of the planet's female population. EDUCATION: 49% of schools worldwide don't have access to an adequate water source.While 55% lacked proper sanitation. You can't learn if you have to leave school for the gick bed. HEALTHCARE: Half of the developing world's hospital beds are O filled with water and sanitation related illnes8 sufferers. THAT'S WHY 1.23 MILLION PEOPLE HAVE MOBILIZED TO MARCH FOR WASH OVER THE PAST 3 YEARS. 2010: MORE THAN 100,000 LINED UP FOR THE WORLD'S LONGEST TOILET QUEVE. 2011: 350,000 WALKED FOR WATER. 2012: 380,000 WALKED FOR WATER. 2013: MORE THAN 400,000 WALKED FOR WATER FROM 65 COUNTRIES.
