What's the human right to water?
Resolution 64/292 from the United Nations General Assembly, approved
in July 2010, affirms water and sanitation rights as "essential for
the full enjoyment of life and all human rights". The
resolution references the UN's resolution declaring the right to
development (54/175), and various UN efforts to improve water and
sanitation conditions such as the International Decade for Action, "Water
for Life" (58/217). It recalls the Universal Declaration of Human
Rights and several international agreements regarding human rights.
The resolution recognizes the commitment of the Human Rights Council
to water and sanitation and reiterates the commitment of nations to
halving the proportion of people who do not have access to water and
sanitation by 2015 as part of the Millennium Development Goals. It
urges states and organizations to dedicate resources and efforts to
overcoming the widespreap deprivation of these rights.
