Pipe Dreams

Earth Report
S9:Ep923 mins2006

For most people, living without access to a safe, clean toilet is unthinkable. Or is it? For nearly two and a half billion – almost half of us – it’s a daily reality. It has a profound impact on health. More than 2.2 million people every year – most of them children – are killed by the spread of water-borne diseases, such as diarrhea. It also in turn affects education and development. Earth Report travels to Senegal, Uganda and India to see what communities are doing to clean up their act. We meet people whose vision of a world with clean water and sanitation for all is more than just a “pipe dream.”
