Human Right to Water

The Temple of Understanding is proud of our work at the United Nations towards including the language of human rights in SDG 6, to protect our right to clean water and sanitation through the human rights framework and body of treaties. And then we carry on towards fulfillment of this sustainable development goal for everyone. Of course, protecting water is also part of eco-justice work, is essential for food sovereignty, and is particularly important for realizing SDG 5, on the rights of women and girls. Without access to clean water and sanitation, many girls drop out of school. Water is essential and water is sacred.
