Realising the Human Rights to Water and Sanitation: A Handbook
Human rights texts adopted by the United Nations frequently seem quite vague, making it hard for States to understand exactly what they must do. Even when committed to realising human rights, States find it difficult to translate the abstractness of universal human rights norms into an appropriate course of action.
This Handbook has been developed to fill that gap. The main focus of this Handbook is to provide guidance for State actors on the implementation of the human rights to water and sanitation as defined
by the international human rights legal framework. It also seeks to identify common challenges and obstacles and how these can be overcome, in order to respond to the practical problems that States face when realising the human rights to water and sanitation.
Examples of problems and possible solutions are given wherever possible, to provide a concrete understanding of how States can bring about the realisation of the human rights to water and sanitation.
The Handbook also provides checklists for States and discusses the different roles of the various actors and the essential partnerships between them that are necessary to bring about the realisation of the human rights to water and sanitation.
This Handbook is organised into several booklets, which include:
- Legislative, policy and regulatory frameworks
- Financing and budgeting
- Access to Justice
