A collaborative review of water resources management legal good practices in 16 countries
This paper attempts to examine how countries can legislatively safeguard essential elements of the human right to water in worsening climate conditions, and what this means for service providers and businesses.
HR2W will be hosting a series of events at Stockholm’s World Water Week including 3 events to promote the theme ‘Bridging the Gaps in Policy between Water and Climate’ founded on our research into the connection between the rights to water and sanitation and the right to a clean and healthy environment. This gap analysis highlights the human rights-based elements for climate mitigation and adaptation that are missing in many national law and policy frameworks.
The sessions will include an active programme of discussion and interaction to develop strong messages to support the work of the Water and Climate Coalition (WCC).
