The authors evaluate shifts in water reservoirs (i.e. atmospheric versus terrestrial and underground water storage). Projections indicate water storage deficits in most Southern Hemisphere basins during the summer.

Journal of Process Control, Volume 133, January 2024

The authors put forward a mathematical model for examining the impact of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services on reducing the transmission of waterborne diseases such as enteric diarrheal disease (EDD). It is found that wastewater and sewage treatment (WST) control has the most significant impact in terms of WASH interventions employed. The findings have could have very important public health potential and tie in strongly with the goals of SDG 6.
