The National Human Rights Institutions Initiative for Good Water Governance is dedicated to enhancing the role of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) in monitoring water governance. As part of the Initiative, WaterLex provides training services on the advancement, promotion and protection of the right to water and related human rights.
- Published the NHRIs good practices compilation, which identifies, gathers and documents important knowledge about the practices, challenges, key factors in successes, and important lessons to be learned in activities undertaken by NHRIs in relation to water governance.
- Published a training manual that provides NHRIs with a deeper understanding of the legal content of the human right to water and sanitation, for them to better promote and protect water governance for the realisation of human rights.
- Launched the NHRI Water Initiative Common Platform, a private platform that allows member institutions to have a peer-to-peer exchange, share knowledge and good practices, and have access to training resources and capacity building tools.
- Since 2014, WaterLex has trained over 30 NHRIs on the Human Right to Water and Sanitation. Regional training events included several NHRIs in the Pan European and Asian region, a group of 19 NHRIs in the meeting of the Asia Pacific Forum (Kuala Lumpur), and country training events in El Salvador, and in Kenya, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda.
