The Return

Summing up everything: the return



Depending on the project, each $ invested in improvements to water supply and sanitation can bring a profit of $ 4 to $ 12 for the local economy.

Even in regions affected by natural disasters, water infrastructures have proven to be a good investment, sometimes also reducing the risk of floods or disease among survivors. Drinking water turns lives, communities, and generations - at a surprisingly low cost: With only $ 20 you can supply drinking water to a person.
