  9. 9. Guinea-Bissau’s EnvironmentalProblems Only sixty-one percent of the country’s water sources have improved. So, that means that Guinea-Bissau’s water isn’t all potable. Only twenty-one percent of the country’s sanitation facility access have improved. So, that means that the citizens can’t properly clean themselves and they’re not able to always flush their “waste” down a proper toilet.
