4.17 Wie sichern wir das Menschenrecht – genügend Wasser für alle? (Rosmarie Bär & Frank Kürschner-Pelkmann)
4.17 How do we guarantee the human right: Sufficient water for all? (Rosmarie Bär & Frank Kürschner-Pelkmann)
How do we guarantee the human right: Sufficient water for all? – Enough water is a human right. That is the conviction of people in all regions of the world and motivates them to fight against attempts to privatise the water supply of cities and regions thus making water a commodity like any other commodity that can be bought by people who have enough purchasing power. Women in particular are loosing out when the market dictates who will get water. In order to defend water as a human right it is urgently necessary to struggle for a water convention. It would oblige governments to respect, protect and fulfil this human right.
