The media, with their extensive coverage of war, can often induce tremendous public pressure on governments and agencies to become involved in facility provision. As a result, governments and donors become more willing to provide financial resources to improve the living conditions of war-torn people. Consequently, despite the tragedy, war can also have positive effects on the sustainability of the community as long as governments, agencies and war-affected people work together. Ironically, therefore, post-war reconstruction of water supply systems can be an opportunity to reach millions of the previously unreached.
