DEFINITION: Access to an improved water source refers to the percentage of the population with reasonable access to an adequate amount of water from an improved source, such as a household connection, public standpipe, borehole, protected well or spring, and rainwater collection.

Reasonable access is defined as the availability of at least 20 liters a person a day from a source within one kilometer of the dwelling.
