The Human Right to Water and Sanitation, Translating Theory into Practice
This white paper discusses how Kenya has formally recognised the human right to water and sanitation in its national strategies and policy documents through Kenya Water Act.
The right to water and sanitation has been recognised by UN as an implicit component of the right to an adequate standard of living and the right to health.
The World Health Organisation says that access to drinking water means every person should have at least 20l per day. But although the right to water and sanitation has been adopted in international human rights framework, there are still lapses in implementation at the regional and national level.
