Summary

The independent expert on the issue of human rights obligations related to access to safe drinking water and sanitation, Catarina de Albuquerque, submits the present report to the General Assembly in accordance with Human Rights Council resolution 12/8. In the report, the independent expert focuses on how human rights, in particular the human rights to water and sanitation, can make a contribution to the realization of the Millennium Development Goals, with a particular focus on target 7.C. She begins with a short summary of the history and defining attributes of the Millennium Development Goals and analyses their potential to help progressively realize economic, social and cultural rights. She continues by examining how human rights can address a number of gaps in the Millennium Development Goal framework relating to universal access, international cooperation and assistance, the formulation of targets and indicators and aligning them with human rights standards, non-discrimination and specific attention to the most marginalized and disadvantaged groups, participation, promoting intersectoral approaches and accountability. The final section of the report contains conclusions and recommendations.
