We have just published an edited transcript of the World Bank-RWSN webinar on the Human Right to Water. It should enable rural water supply professionals and practitioners to understand more about what the human right to water means in practice.
The Rural Water Supply Network (RWSN) Equity and Inclusion group ran a three week e-discussion (via email) on the hu-man right to water in April/May 2012 (hosted on http://dgroups.org/RWSN/equity). Over 250 members were invited to share their hopes, fears, questions and suggestions about how the human right to water affects the finance, planning and implementation of rural water supply projects. It was an interesting discussion and formed the basis for a letter with six questions to Catarina de Albuquerque, the first UN Special Rapporteur on the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation. She responded to the letter in a World Bank-RWSN webinar in June 2012, and answered further questions from participants.
