The Millennium Declaration (2000) and commitment by the International community show a political will for increasing access to safe drinking water. Solutions at the federal and local level are making progress but dependent on many factors. Laying pipe for access to water needs a large capital investment and takes a large population to justify the investment in construction and a suitable method of treatment. WHO, UNICEF, IRC and others are seeking local solutions at point of use, such as the ceramic water filter made locally, from local materials. This method of POU water treatment developed by Potters for Peace (PfP) creates a local solution of creating a ceramic filter from local materials which the general population have been using for water storage for many generations making it quickly accepted by users.  This solution achieves the goal of rapidly increasing access to clean water at the lowest possible cost through a local solution.
