Description/achievement of initiative
Targets to achieve through this commitment are: 1) Increased awareness of human right to water and sanitation; 2) Identification of key stakeholders willing to work on this issue; 3) Analysis of social, legal, environmental and economic implications emerging from current legal framework; 4) Developing proposals for better implementation of human right to water and sanitation at domestic levels; 5) Exchange of social, scientific, economic, technical and environmental perspectives; 6) Multi-sector approach for achieving a better access to this right. Our target will be focused on civil society, NGOs, governmental sector, corporations, water utilities, and international cooperation agencies.
Following tools will be developed: 1) Presential and virtual forums, such as a HR2W blog, motorized by partner´s audiences and websites. 2) Networking with interested organizations to better addressing key issues. 3) Knowledge sharing on international law instruments linked with analysis of domestic regulations and institutions. 4) Series of position papers addressing specific dimensions of HR2WS. Eventually, discussions with academic community may lead to a proper recognition of this human right within Faculty curricula.
