The teacher brings the statistics of the 5 countries with the lowest access to water worldwide (in 2018: Eritrea 19%, Papua New Guinea 37%, Uganda 39%, Ethiopia 39%, Dem Rep of the Congo 39%).
Students divide into 5 groups, each group chooses a country and investigates reasons for poor access to water (e.g. in 2018: Eritrea 19%, Papua New Guinea 37%, Uganda 39%, Ethiopia 39%, Democratic Republic of the Congo 39%), taking into account geopolitical factors and scale issues, as well as socio-cultural and economic conditions that can create inequalities. The groups share their findings and discuss commonalities, differences and interdependencies.
