New Human Right!

Right to Clean Water and Sanitation for All

UN declared basic right to clean water and sanitation to all. Here is an excerpt from their homepage.

By a vote of 122 in favour to none against, with 41 abstentions, the General Assembly today adopted, as orally revised, a resolution calling on States and international organizations to provide financial resources, build capacity and transfer technology, particularly to developing countries, in scaling up efforts to provide safe, clean, accessible and affordable drinking water and sanitation for all.
