Reflections on the Right to Water as We Move Towards Rio+20

Reflections on the Right to Water as We Move Towards Rio+20 | Education for Sustainable Development | Scoop.it

It was less than two years ago, in the summer of 2010, that the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) adopted a resolution recognizing water as a human right. This was followed by the United Nations Human Rights Council (UN HRC) adopting a resolution on “human rights and access to safe drinking water and sanitation,” which made these rights legally binding. The recognition of the right to water at these U.N. bodies, and the developments since, such as the appointment of a Special Rapporteur on right to water and the resolution by the World Health Assembly recognizing right to water, have helped place water rights on the global agenda.

Sarantis Chelmis's insight:

"Rio+20 presents world leaders the opportunity to create a new paradigm of sustainable lifestyles - for the rich and poor alike, as well as for everyone in between. Ensuring that our future needs can be met, and balancing our consumption with the environmental limits of the planet, is a collective effort that will impact all levels of society."

Who's Who at the UN's Rio+20 Summit?: Global Human Sustainability | Education for Sustainable Development | Scoop.it
