Description
Where scarcity and contamination compound the water problem so too does inadequate sanitation. But now for the first time there is an international effort to bring safe water to the entire world. JOURNEY FOR SURVIVAL examines how this goal is being achieved in a variety of countries: Ethiopia, Yemen, Peru, India, Bangladesh and the Philippines. Under the aegis of the United Nations International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade 1981-1990 we see how small-technology, community action solutions are tackling 'a problem which is at the very heart of the development effort.
