Implementation-monitoring of Human Rights to Water and Sanitation and SDG6

Convenor(s):
Inter-American Development Bank; Spanish Cooperation Agency for International Development and WaterLex

The Sustainable Development Agenda is grounded in the human rights framework with a commitment to the human rights to water and sanitation. The human rights approach is also well reflected in the SDGs. Consequently, as the human rights and development communities pursue national level implementation of SDGs, success can be engendered trhough an understanding of the coverage and complementarity provided by the international and regional human rights mechanisms in monitoring implementation, including rights-sensitive indicators. Given the interlinkages between SDG6 and the human rights framework, the panel discussion will shed light on the relevance and complementarity of the United Nations human rights system, African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights in monitoring State SDG6 implementation at the national level, including the water sector. Participants will gain an understanding of how they might interact with these human rights systems and valuable information on strategies to monitor and verify implementation and an overview of tools being developed, including newly developed rights-sensitive indicators. Never before have these international and regional mandate holders come together for a panel discussion at World Water Week. In addition, different instruments and methodologies for the implementation of the HRWS will be presented.
