Who implements the human right to water and sanitation, and how?
The Manual contains IWA operational guidelines for the contribution of water professionals to the practical implementation and progressive realization of the HRWS. The target public are operators and managers of private and public sector utilities, others with responsibilities for the formal or informal provision of drinking water supply and sanitation services, NGOs and other civil society groups, and government agencies at all levels, dealing with the planning, implementation, surveillance and regulation of water supply and sanitation services. The objective of the workshop will be to introduce the target audience to the principles and concepts contained in the HRWS, to clarify to them language and terminology used in the promotion of human rights, and to provide guidance concerning their roles and responsibilities in contributing to progressive realization of the HRWS, and on how the human rights principles and actions can be incorporated into the essential functions of their companies, agencies and institutions. In the workshop we will count with the participation of Gérard Payen, Member of the IWA Board, Pascale Guiffant, Deputy Director, Sustainable Development and Reputation, Suez Environment and Moez Allaoui, Senior Legal Desk Officer, WATERLEX International Secretariat, Geneva.
