Cambodia: Production and Dissemination of Water Purifiers

The project provides access to clean drinking water for an estimated 1.7 million people across 312,000 households over 7 years. This project directly addresses several of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and especially to halve, by 2015, the proportion of the population without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation. It also integrates the principles of sustainable development into country policies and programs and reverses the loss of environmental resources; reducing child mortality, improving maternal health, combating disease, and ensuring environmental sustainability.
