Human right to safe water and sanitation

The Special Rapporteur on the right to safe drinking water and sanitation will hold a consultation meeting on 1 February 2012 in Geneva on the issue of stigmatisation.

All stakeholders are invited, so your personal attendance and statement will be very much appreciated. Written submissions are also welcome until 31 January.

WECF will attend the meeting and will provide input. So we are very happy to receive information from your side about cases from groups or individuals who are discriminated against and are on these grounds impeded in exercising their right to water and sanitation. How are they affected and how can one overcome these violations? In particular, we are interested in gender based discrimination in different countries/regions. If you have any experiences or cases about, in particular, women, children or disabled persons being unable to use water or sanitation facilities due to their gender, age or disability please let us know.

We would be very grateful to receive information and/or case studies until 30 January 2012. Please feel free to contact me (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) regarding any other issue related to the Special Rapporteur.

Thank you and best wishes,
