Summary

This handbook helps civil society and those working on water and sanitation to adopt a human rights-based approach to improve water and sanitation service regulation and provision at international, national, and local levels. The human right to water and sanitation obligates governments as duty bearers. But civil society can play a fundamental role in holding their governments to account; so it should be involved in all levels. This handbook is therefore a great introduction to advocacy processes and how to influence decision makers.
