Implementing the Right to Water

In the framework of the World Water Week this side event will be held in Stockholm on 27 August 2012.

The right to water has gained much recognition in recent years. It was one of the major focuses this year at both the 6th World Water Forum in Marseille, France, and the Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development. This event will explore progress made on the issue and the way forward in turning this right into a reality.
