human rights to water and sanitation

Human rights to water and sanitation resolution passed!

It’s done! The United Nations General Assembly, as of yesterday 17 December 2015, passed and adopted the resolution on the human rights to water and sanitation. This resolution recognises the distinction between the human right to water and that of sanitation, which is a fundamentally important step in the recognition of the prioritisation of sanitation.
