One billion people in the world still need access to improved water and two billion need access to improved sanitation, according to the World Bank.

Only three percent of the planet's water can reportedly be used for human consumption, while only a fraction gets used.

Pabsy Pabalan met with Junaid Kamal Ahmad, who leads the World Bank's Water Global Practice (GP).

She began by asking him about the challenges of water scarcity around the world.
