Water for Life - A message from the UN Special Rapporteur on the rights to drinking water and sanitation
On-site with maximum capacity
Nearly 2.2 billion people have no access to safe drinking water, despite living near rivers, lakes or aquifers. At the same time, by turning water into a traded financial security in futures markets, that access becomes even more difficult and the vulnerability of millions of people increases.
Pedro Arrojo Agudo, the UN Special Rapporteur on the human rights to drinking water and sanitation, offers the Week a specially recorded message, where he speaks about the challenges that humanity is facing in relation to this asset that is essential for life.
