22ND MARCH WORLD WATER DAY

Everyone has the right to have access to drinking water, but for too many it is still only a distant dream.
Today is the designated day to share more information and raise awareness on the current water issues and act upon it so that this fundamental human right will not only remain to be vague promise.

We would like to point out the International Campaign “WaterHumanrighttretay” and its website www.waterhumanrighttreaty.org to join the campaign and support it.
The goal is to urge the international community to establish legally binding rules on the right to water to reemphasize the UN resolution of 2010.
The Italian Committee for a World Water Contract (CICMA) summarized the principles and formulated concrete solutions to allow for the “human right to water and sanitation” in a draft protocol.

In particular:
• Define water as a common public good, share it and therefore show solidarity
• Claim the mandatory nature of the human right to water, even in exceptional circumstances (war)
• Affirm the principles of precaution and sustainability to ensure access to water for future generations
• Define the concept of ownership and responsibility, which should not be interpreted differently by individual States
• Introduce the principle of non-discrimination and emphasizes the protection and priorities of vulnerable groups
• Define proper use of water by prioritizing it for nutrition, food and hygiene
• Quantify potential access to water within a vicinity of 1000 meters and 500 meters to toilets
