Cap-Net UNDP, the Water Governance Facility at SIWI, WaterLex and REDICA present an updated version of the training manual on the Human Rights-Based Approach to Integrated Water Resources Management. It brings together two fields that, until recently, have been separate. The need for this manual became felt as awareness grew within the human rights community that water management is fundamental to the realization of a range of human rights, and vice versa.
The Human Rights-Based Approach (HRBA) is a suitable lens for the work towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with its universal vision to “leave no one behind” and “seek to realize the human rights of all”. This manual will serve as a useful resource in transferring knowledge from professionals to those who work in water management and governance. The facilitator’s guide in the final chapter provides tested training tools for achieving the objectives of a HRBA to IWRM.
