Abstract

In the context of the contentious issue surrounding the legal status and implementation of the general human right to a clean environment, the human right to water is probably the most disputed. Much has been written about a human right to water, but no firm conclusions have been drawn as to its existence, as the practice of States in this respect is very limited.
