The World Health Organization stressed the importance of taking urgent measures to provide drinking water and sanitation services in a sustainable manner in all countries, in response to the analysis and evaluation report conducted by the organization on sanitation and drinking water services in all countries over the course of 2022. The report warned The severity of weather and climate-related extremes impedes access to safe drinking water. He added that 75% of countries lack strategies related to water, sanitation and hygiene, which increases the importance of directing investments to expand access to drinking water and sanitation services in a sustainable manner by 2030 for the most vulnerable groups.

This comes at a time when more than 800 children are exposed to death every day due to sanitation, poor hygiene and diseases resulting from them. Also, 50% of the world’s population lacks safe sanitation, and the best solution is to take advantage of energy recycling in wastewater. The results of the 2022 Analysis and Evaluation Report, which is the largest collection of data related to clean water, sanitation and hygiene matters for more than 120 countries, will serve as guiding information for taking the voluntary commitments that the international community will undertake at the United Nations Water Conference next March 2023.
