How water quality / quantity important for development
By the quality of water being good for the residents it can lower the number of people that have diseases
This leads on to more people being able to work in the population leading to more money being put into the economy
Enough water needs to be produced so that all of the population are able to have enough water.
This will help the development to be wide spread
By people not having to go early in the morning and late at night it means that woman and people are less likely to be abused.
Drinking water prevents dehydration
Showering improves standards of hygiene which then improves standards of hygiene which then prevents disease
Plentiful water supply allows you to cook more things which can improve the quality of your diet and health
How it makes it sustainable
It lasts a long time so it is accessible to later generations
quality of the builds, showers, toilets etc are very high
Built by locals who would be using the facilities - likely to build it better.
Locals will use the building skills which they could use elsewhere and earn themselves money
People are paid for doing the jobs as well, therefore would have more income which could be spent on the water income.
Young people have clean water which incentivises them to go to school and they are learning more about the importance of clean water
Adults of the future - need to be educated
Use of local materials as far as possible
easy to get hold off
easy to fix due to them being local materials
Affordable to the local residents
