A webinar series examining the 10 year history of the Human Rights to Water and Sanitation.
On July 28, 2010 the United Nations General Assembly voted to enshrine the human rights to water and sanitation in international law. Hear from the water justice activists, trade unionists and policy experts who led the campaign for the recognition of this socio-economic right and who are leading the efforts for its realization today. From the global to the local, we discuss the significance of the human rights to water and sanitation in the midst of a global pandemic.
