Clean Water for Developing Countries
John Dracup, Ph.D., has over 50 years of research into water resource engineering and has taught at both UCLA and UC Berkeley. Over the years, he has generated many ideas on how we can improve clean water systems. He’s worked on water projects in Kenya, Peru, Honduras, and Guatemala, which he discusses in his book.
Dr. Dracup has worked first-hand in a wide variety of situations, from an individual household to an entire village. He’s learned many lessons along his journey. He believes the issue of clean water in developing countries can be solved, and we have the technology and ability to convert polluted water into drinking water. However, a community must be able to work together for a common goal to achieve clean water.
The world can achieve clean drinking water for all, with determination and funding, no one needs to worry about becoming sick or dying from the water they drink. Clean Water for Developing Countries lays out exactly how we can solve this issue.
