•issues of concern related to the human rights to safe drinking water and sanitation, including but not limited to:
◦availability of water and sanitation (e.g., quantity of water available for each person);
◦accessibility water and sanitation (e.g., facilities should be within safe physical reach, facilities should be accessible to everyone, access to services in rural area vs. urban area, piped water, sewerage network);
◦quality water and sanitation (e.g., drinking water should be safe, free from micro-organism, chemical substance, and radiological hazards, how quality is monitored);
◦affordability of water and sanitation (e.g., water tariffs, social tariffs for services, disconnections of services for inability to pay);
◦information on water and sanitation (e.g., information regarding quality of water);
◦judicial and non-judicial remedies available in case of violation of human rights to safe drinking water and sanitation; and
◦institutional framework of the water and sanitation sector in the country, including the role of the national and subnational governments, regulatory actors and the service providers.
