Recently water was listed on the wall streets for the future water market as a tradable commodity, like oil and gold.  Those who has the money can buy the water and control the access and tariff. This can jeopardise the human right to water from the poor, marginalised and vulnerable communities, including the smallholding farmers. To explore this issue deeper WCC-EWN organized a joint event with the office of the UN Special Rapporteur for Human Right to Water and Sanitation, Prof. Pedro Arrojo-Agudo.
