English term or phrase: they experience indignity
Notwithstanding improvements in access to water
and sanitation, the poorest people
suffer the greatest water deficit as a result of location, poor infrastructure and lack of financial resources. Consequently, they experience ill health and indignity (UNDP 2006).
In many developing countries, poor people in cities
pay more for water than wealthier inhabitants.
