Manual on the Right to Water and Sanitation

issuu.com/christinadianparmionova/docs/manual_on_the_...
The Manual on the Right to Water and Sanitation is designed to assist policy makers and practitioners in implementing the right to water and sanitation. This publication, written in non-legal language, addresses the vital need to clarify how human rights can be practically realised in the water and sanitation sector. The Manual recognizes that implementing the right to water and sanitation is not limited to legal recognition or allocation of funds. Rather, it provides the basis for practical reforms in many areas of water supply and sanitation and in water resource management that can help make the water and sanitation sector operate in a manner that is more pro-poor, accountable and inclusive.

Water and Sanitation in the World’s Cities: Local Action for Global Goals

issuu.com/unhabitat/docs/1150_alt...
The world’s governments agreed at the Millennium Summit to halve the number of people who lack access to safe water, mainly in the world’s cities, by 2015. With rapidly growing urban populations the challenge is immense. Water and Sanitation in the World’s Cities is a comprehensive and authoritative assessment of the problems and how they can be addressed. This influential publication by the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT) sets out in detail the scale of inadequate provision of water and sanitation. It describes the impacts on health and economic performance, showing the potential gains of remedial action; it analyses the proximate and underlying causes of poor provision and identifies information gaps affecting resource allocation; it outlines the consequences of further deterioration; and it explains how resources and institutional capacities – public, private and community – can be used to deliver proper services through integrated water resource management.

Gender, Water and Sanitation. Case studies on best practices

issuu.com/christinadianparmionova/docs/gender__water_...
United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA). 2006 This handbook presents a set of 15 case studies from Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East on gender mainstreaming in the water and sanitation sector. It depicts a series of best practices in securing sustainable safe drinking water and sanitation for communities by engaging both men and women as critical stakeholders. The case studies demonstrate that, at the community level, solutions to clean water and appropriate sanitation are context-specific and that answers to the different interests of men and women can be found through dialogue, innovation, participation and collaboration.
