Rights Groups Protest Lack Of Reference To Human Right To Water In SDG Agenda

Inter Press Service: U.N.’s Post-2015 Agenda Skips the Right to Water and Sanitation
“A U.N. working group mandated to formulate a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the post-2015 development agenda is being accused of bypassing water and sanitation as a basic human right: a right long affirmed in a General Assembly resolution adopted back in July 2010. … [A] protest is being led and coordinated by the Mining Working Group, a coalition of NGOs which promotes human and environmental rights worldwide…” (Deen, 5/6).
