    According to the WHO, each human being requires a bare minimum of 20 litres of fresh water per day
    for basic hygiene;[11] this equals 7.3 cubic metres (about 255 ft3) per person, per year.
    Based on the availability, access and development of water supplies, the specific usage figures
    vary widely from country to country, with developed nations having existing systems to treat water for
    human consumption, and deliver it to every home. At the same time however, some nations across Latin America,
    parts of Asia, South East Asia, Africa and the Middle East either do not have sufficient water resources or have not developed
    these or the infrastructure to the levels required. This occurs for many varied reasons. It has resulted in conflict and often results
    in a reduced level or quantity of fresh water per capita consumption; this situation leads toward disease, and at times, to starvation and death.
