The objective of this brochure is to raise awareness to the right to water as an important health and human rights concern. Water is the essence of life and human dignity. The right to water entitles everyone to sufficient safe acceptable physically accessible and affordable water and it must be enjoyed without discrimination by women and men. For poor people the lack of safe water constitutes an acute deprivation and cause of ill health. The brochure outlines the scope and content of the human right to water and its relationship to other civil cultural economic political and social rights. In particular water is closely linked and associated with the rights to food and nutrition to work and to a healthy environment.
