‘Leaving No One Behind’ is a phrase that embodies the human
right to water, ensuring that no-one should be excluded from this essential
element for life. With the annual theme
at Stockholm World Water Week based on social inclusion, WaterLex was given a
licence to present some of its latest research on water tenure and its analysis
of national water laws to establish how well the human rights to water and
sanitation have been included.
Following the 1st World Summit on Leaving No One
Behind in February this year, it was also an excellent opportunity to showcase
several of the innovative winning finalists, and how they demonstrate the
meaning of a human rights-based approach.
