  • Despite much progress in the field of international development, humanity continues to face tremendous global challenges. Water problems such as access to safe drinking water and reliable sanitation affect about half of the world’s population.  Nearly 1.1 billion people do not have access to clean drinking water. Two point six billion people do not have access to proper sanitation. An even more disturbing fact is that unsafe water, inadequate sanitation and lack of hygiene claim the lives of 1.6 million children under the age of five every year.
     
    The world’s energy story isn’t much better. About 1.4 billion people lack access to direct electricity. Two point seven billion people still rely on traditional cooking methods utilizing biomass energy. We all know that cooking shouldn’t kill. But it is estimated that the household air pollution resulting from biomass use will result in more than 1.5 million deaths per year by 2030.
     
    These statistics reveal a dire reality, but there’s still good news to share.

Our members work with the community to assess, design, implement and monitor appropriate solutions. EWB-USA programs bring together multiple partners to accomplish what is needed. Typically, there is the EWB-USA chapter, the community, a local community based organization, a municipality, and others such as Rotary and Peace Corps.
