Tackling Water Issues in Refugee Camps

Tackling Water Issues in Refugee Camps | Healthy Waters | Scoop.it

Majority of refugee camps in the world are unable to provide the recommended daily water minimum of 20 liters water per person per day. The biggest reason behind lack of water at refugee camps across the globe is the lack of water infrastructure which makes it very difficult to transport sufficient amounts of water, and provide proper sanitation to all residents of a refugee camp. Poor quality of water in refugee camps has created a “crisis within a crisis” causing outbreaks of waterborne diseases such as cholera, typhoid and hepatitis.

Salman Zafar's curator insight, December 13, 2015 2:14 AM

With the refugee situation worsening and no permanent solution to this crisis in sight, the minimum that can be done is to provide an adequate amount and quality of water for these refugees. There must be water quality regulations specific to refugee camps that take into account the different aspects that might affect the quality of water (transport, storage, temperature).
