World Water Day 2019

March 22 is World Water Day!

"The theme for World Water Day 2019 is ‘Leaving no one behind,’ which is the central promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: as sustainable development progresses, everyone must benefit."

In 2017, the NGO Mining Working Group, an NGO coalition promoting human and environmental rights at the UN, prepared Water & Sanitation:  A People's Guide to SDG 6 - A Rights-Based Approach to Implementation.

"To achieve and stay truthful to the global pledge of leaving no one behind, we specifically call for a rights-based implementation of SDG 6 that: prevents the commodification, increases public financing, and promotes commons-based water resource management." 

The Guide is available in English and Spanish.
