Water and sanitation have been a high priority in the development agenda for Thailand, and a substantial portion of the national budget has been allocated to it in the last three decades. This has resulted in the availability of water in suffi cient quantity, but not always of satisfactory quality. Nationally, access to an improved water supply in Thailand rose from a low 10% in 1973 to the current level of over 90%—an improvement that has led to a positive change in the life of many women and children in rural areas, who do not have to travel long distances anymore for water.
This is part of the Triple-S (Sustainable Services at Scale) Water services that last-project.
