Having access to safe drinking water and sanitation is central to living a life in dignity and upholding human rights. Yet billions of people still do not enjoy these fundamental rights.
The rights to water and sanitation further require an explicit focus on the most disadvantaged and marginalized, as well as an emphasis on participation, empowerment, accountability and transparency.
On May 29, 2012 National Human Rights Commission organised the Lecture Session on ‘Sanitation and Human Rights’ in Summer Internship Programme for the students of LL.B., LL.M / Master Degree in subjects of Social Science & Human Rights from 13 states/UTs.
