On Wednesday 28 July, the UN will vote on an historic resolution affirming the human right to water. But a powerful group of countries are trying to undermine the resolution.

The moment for having states recognize the human right to water and sanitation is right now.  This is a critical step to seeing action to address the needless loss of dignity, misery and death that comes with not having clean water and sanitation.

An historic UN General Assembly resolution titled "The Human Right to Water and Sanitation" has been officially tabled by at least 23 co-sponsoring member states and the government of Bolivia.

The date set for UN member states to consider this resolution is Wednesday, July 28th.
