In the days of the past when industrialization was not pervasive the concept of water sanitation and hygiene may not have entered town planning or perhaps even town planning was an unknown term itself. These new concepts are products of industrialization, which has not only led to excessive division of labor but to problems of great magnitude like climate change and pollution! The problem of pollution and climate change is hurting and affection the entire globe alike and the problems that are coming to surface are the problems that were totally unknown to people a few decades ago. The times we are living in we need excessive town planning because we have to now build towns and cities that can sustain themselves against natural and man-made disasters alike and if they can’t the human and financial price is just too high! In industrialized countries situation is not that worse because living standards are high and the grip of law on industries is strong but in many parts of the world where these ingredients are missing, industrialization is creating hygiene and sanitation nightmares.
In the third world, the standards of water sanitation and hygiene are dramatically bleak. Industries pour their waste into water channels, which eventually reach people for drinking and other uses alike. This creates a grave situation for human life and it is not hard to see this horrendous life in third world countries. Various international institutes are working for the cause and a huge amount of international investment is flowing right into these countries only to avert the disasters that are coming about in the form of infected water. The substandard water and other graver hygiene issues are caused by industrialization and myriad other reasons. The only way out of them is to follow the standards that are followed in the first world if we are trying to keep the world safe for all.
