Legal Resources for the Right to Water and Sanitation
International and National Standards - 2nd edition
2008/Sources No. 8: Legal Resources for the Right to Water and Sanitation sets out the foundations for the right to water and sanitation in international and regional treaties and declarations as well as in national laws. It also highlights relevant decisions of international and national judicial and quasijudicial bodies.
While it presents explicit references to the right to water and sanitation and/or State duties to provide such services, it also describes legal provisions that implicitly refer to access to water and sanitation as a component of an adequate standard of living, hygiene or protection of the environment. This guide covers the authoritative interpretation and application of the right to water and sanitation by the relevant United Nations and regional governmental bodies.
