The geographical location of the place where you live is a significant factor. People residing in water-scarce areas are excluded mainly because of the unavailability of water resources (surface or ground water). There are also places where there is water resource potential but the site is remote and hard to reach. Lack of appropriate technology and land ownership rights are also important issues in some locations. The exclusion in these cases affects everyone in that location, not just people with disabilities or other marginalised groups.
