Conference: The right to water and water rights


The UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education hosts a colloquium on «The right to water and water rights in a changing world» on 22 September 2010.

This is a great and timely topic. However, the detailed programme notes indicate that the scope of the colloquium might extend to a host of other issues such as effectiveness, climate change, legal adaptability, floods and scarcity. Such a variety of subjects to cover in a single day might hinder a reflection aimed at clarifying the relationships between the human rights to water and other water rights at international and national levels - in itself a formidable task.

Among the participants are Professors Joyeeta Gupta and Laurence Boisson de Chazournes.
