Special Event on reducing inequalities at the UN 2023 Conference
AquaFed is very proud to be working in a diverse group to organise a Special Event about inequalities and human rights at the UN 2023 Water Conference.
The event is called: Reducing Inequality, using a Human Rights based approach across the water domain and will be in the UN building in New York Wednesday, 23rd March at 15.00 hours EST.
Our wonderful partners who are co-organising this event are: • Women for Water Partnership • Fund for the Development of Indigenous Peoples in Latin America and the Caribbean (FILAC) • African Youth Parliament for Water • UN OHCHR • Special Rapporteur on the human right to water and sanitation. • International Indian Treaty Council, representing the Indigenous Peoples Coalition.
We are still working on developing the event, but the aim is to influence Member States and other decision-makers to prioritize the reduction of inequalities through a human rights-based approach and integrated water resources management, to advance SDG6 and most of the other SDGs.
The event will demonstrate the value of a human rights-based approach to the Water Action Agenda, by ensuring rights-holders’ meaningful, democratic and equal participation in water governance, especially women, youth and indigenous peoples.
It will be carried out in a way that ensures stakeholders and rights holders engage decision-makers to take concrete action.
And it will offer clear action-orientated solutions, with methodologies and best practices, that have been successful over time and are scalable and replicable in other countries and regions and preferably are entered into the Water Action Agenda.
We will provide more details about it as they develop.
