Economic development, political stability and public health are directly related to civil infrastructure. Without clean drinking water, dependable power, transportation and the like, communities cannot grow and sustain themselves. This fact is no more evident than in the developing world where many cities and villages lack the technical expertise, and funding to meet their needs and are forced to resort to day-to-day survival habits. These habits use energies and resources that could be spent on increasing agricultural production, strengthening education, and fighting disease. In this age of globalization, it is unacceptable that certain communities do not have equal access to certain infrastructure, particularly water.

Ultimately, leaders are responsible for ensuring that their communities have sustainable water systems, even in the developing world, however, varied organizations including industrialized governments, banks, non-governmental, religious, and non-profits, are making great strides to establish equal access to potable water. One such example is the Nigeria Faithful Fund's project to provide a sustainable water supply system at the Baptist Medical Centre in Ogbomoso, Nigeria.
