Safe Drinking Water Availability Map shows a world map where countries have been colored using different colors according to availability of safe drinking water by total population.
North America, Russia, Europe, Australia etc are areas where the percentage of safe drinking water access by total population is over 90%. In China, most of South America, India etc the percentage of safe drinking water access by total population is 75-90%. White drops have been used to indicate areas where water availability is under 80 litre per person per day. The white drops can be seen in all the developing countries. As can be seen in the Safe Drinking Water Availability Map, blue drops have been used to show areas where water availability is under 320 litre per person per day. It is so in all the developed countries.
Access to safe water can be measured by the number of people who have a reasonable means of getting sufficient water that is safe for drinking. Availability of safe drinking water is an indicator of the health of a country. A developed country will be more efficient in collecting, cleaning and distributing water to consumers. It is a sad fact but is true that ninety percent of urban sewage in the developing world is discharged into rivers and other water bodies. In the developing world, millions of residents lack a source of safe drinking water near their homes. People get safe drinking water from various sources such as household connection, borehole, protected dug well, public standpipe etc.
