While they are nowhere near good enough, the MDGs are at least a bare minimum.
This photo exhibit on the Millennium Development Goals by Panos Pictures, in association with ActionAid, Concern Worldwide, Interact Worldwide, Panos Institute, Plan International, VSO and WaterAid is worth a look.
I especially like the section on Goal 7 - To ensure environmental sustainability, which includes a target to halve the proportion of people with no access to safe drinking water and sanitation by 2015.
When Dieter Telemans told the people in these photographs that in the west each of us uses 135 litres of water every day, they didn't believe him. They're lucky to get 10.
One billion people in the world don't have clean water to drink. Far from needing water to "detox" their bodies or "rehydrate" their skin, they just need clean water to survive.
Is that too much to ask?
BBC World also did a special on this issue the other day - focusing on Angola. I can't find anything about it on their website though...
