UN Special Rapporteur - human rights to water and sanitation

Reflections on the value of water

In this short video to promote World Water Day 2021, Pedro Arrojo-Agudo, the new UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights to Water and Sanitation, reflects on the many different values that water has to us.

And, how can we value rivers and forests as more than just a source of water and wood for human consumption?
