Recognition of human right to water under international law regime
Water is essential for the survival of mankind and a most basic need. Consequently, the enjoyment of the human right to water is a prerequisite for the enjoyment of life itself. As far as the recognition of the human right to water is concerned – many international law treaties have give given express or implied recognition to this right. The existing international treaties do not foresee enforcement mechanisms, but de facto mostly belong to international soft law and do not create ant binding obligations. The present paper explores the various international law instruments dealing with this valuable right and suggests improvements in the existing legal regime for better protection of the human right to water.
