Call to action for the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation

09 March 2012

The 6th World Water Forum is held under the slogan "It’s time for solutions and commitments”. Yet the current draft Ministerial Declaration falls short of commitments on the right to safe drinking water and sanitation that virtually all United Nations Member States have already made. This is unacceptable.

This Call to Action asks Ministers attending the Forum to change the language of the draft Ministerial Declaration to reflect human rights language that has been agreed by the United Nations.
The Call to Action (see below) will be circulated to Ministers at the Forum on 11 and 12 March, which is when the Ministerial Conference will be taking place.
