On November 21st 2013 the UN's Third Committee (Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural) approved a draft resolution on the Human Right to Water and Sanitation.

This draft focuses on ensuring the "human right to safe drinking water and sanitation in a non-discriminatory manner, while eliminating inequalities in access, with a focus on the most disadvantaged and marginalized" while keeping the status of the human right to water and sanitation in discussions and monitoring.

Please follow the link for more information on the draft, as well as the national-level criticisms on the content and intent of the draft: water-l.iisd.org/news/unga-approves-text...ater-and-sanitation/
