International Protocol for the human right to water and sanitation
The Campaign Water Human Right Treaty aims engage the States parties to ratify a legal instrument able to realize the human right to water by UN resolution of July 2010 as a universal, autonomous and specific human right , defining binding norms and States’ obligations to achieve the right to water at minimum level to guarantee the dignity of the life. The instrument proposed is a Second Optional to International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights signed by States, which defines on the substantial and the procedural levels, how to achieve the right.

The proposal is to identify, through the mobilization of citizens, a group of States and Institutions willing to open negotiations.
