What causes all of the water problems in Africa?

    I’m not sure what you mean by “all of the water problems” but I’ll try to address a few different water problems.

    Drought: Africa’s water resources are scattered throughout the continent to varying degrees. Some places have more than enough water while many areas are dry and experience little to no rain, causing drought. These droughts can last up to 5 years. This causes problems with growing food or accessing water since the technology does not exist in many parts of the continent to ensure everyone has access to water even if it does not fall in that area.

    Dirty Water/Disease: Lack of access to clean water causes all kinds of problems; poverty, heath, hunger. A good part of an African’s day involves looking for clean water since so many public water sources (like rivers) are polluted and contaminated.
