Who Is Water Rich and Who Is Poor? World Water Council 3 rd Water Forum Water Poverty Index (WPI) Among 147 countries Haiti Worst-Finland Best resources-access-capacity-use-environmental impact Why WPI: Because it makes the links between poverty, social deprivation, environmental integrity, water availability and Health enabling the policy makers and stakeholders to identify where problems exist and the appropriate measures to deal with their causes.. Is it only the amount ?
