At a glance 

It is estimated at around 2 billion people lack access to safely managed drinking water, and as climate changes, the problem is getting worse. Even if governments know that a water source is unsafe, it’s challenging to get this information out to the community whose health may be at risk. The Saaf water solution includes a hardware monitoring component that can be connected to incoming pipes to measure water quality in real-time. The information is processed using AI, and a simple dashboard and mobile app can notify a community directly if water is unsafe and provide purification recommendations.
