Breaking News
September, 2015: On 8th September 2015, the EU parliament adopted its own initiative report following-up the European Citizen’s Initiative Right2Water. During the debate, the Parliament converged on the fact that “EU member states have a duty to ensure that access to water is guaranteed for all, regardless of the supplier and that suppliers provide safe drinking water and improve sanitation” . In 2013, AquaFed drew attention to the need for action, calling for inclusion of the Human right to water and sanitation in the European charter of Fundamental Rights. AquaFed welcomes the Parliament’s recognition of the paramount importance of implementing the Human right to water and sanitation, and of involving all actors to the best of their capacities.
AquaFed looks forward to dialogue and to contributing to implementing this Right both in and outside Europe. (Press release in English)
