Water, a truly remarkable life sustaining resource that most of us in North America take for granted. We are extremely fortunate to have an abundance of this natural resource to use when and how we choose. Regrettably, this freedom to choose is not the case for billions of other people throughout the world.

To learn more about the global state of water, you can begin by reading some of the facts on water and sanitiation compiled by the International Decade for Action, Water For Life Decade, 2005 -2015.

The adjoining organizations’ sites are a valuable resource of information concerning the state of water from the national to a global level. They also provide extensive links to other water related sites.

While attempts are made to keep the links up to date, it must be recognized some information may be out of date as well as some links may in fact no longer work. We ask that should you find broken links or incorrect information, please contact us or the Webmaster for the particular site.
