Water scarcity and poverty linked

As you know, we still have colossal poverty in the world. Extreme poverty usually occurs in areas where you have no water. Water is very important, it’s a scarce resource. Countries that are endowed with a lot of water, like Canada, or part of the U.S., or some European countries like Switzerland (we have a lot of water), are very fortunate.

Countries that have no water like those in Sub-Saharan Africa are very unfortunate.
