Mapping Access to Clean Water & Sanitation
The Guardian has created a number of interactive maps visualizing the worldwide access to clean water and sanitation. The United Nation has proposed, as one of 17 new Sustainable Development Goals, that by 2030 everyone in the world should have access to safe water and sanitation.
The Guardian's maps explore the current state of clean water and sanitation across the globe. The maps include visualizations of data from the WHO/Unicef Joint Monitoring Programme, to show the current state of access to clean water and safe sanitation.
These maps show which countries have access to clean drinking water and which countries have access to improved sanitation facilities. The Guardian has also created two maps visualizing which countries met the millennium development goal of providing access to clean water and the millennium development goal on sanitation.
