Post-2015 Development Agenda Must Focus On Human Rights, With WASH At Center

Devex: We can’t fail twice: New global development agenda must be framed by human rights
Megan MacGarry, campaigns and communications officer at End Water Poverty (EWP)

“…The new global development agenda post-2015 has to be framed by human rights and owned by the people. … If we want to truly address inequality, then human rights — particularly access to water, sanitation, and hygiene — have to be a critical priority. … EWP is calling for a post-2015 world where we see the end of inherent systemic inequalities and that water and sanitation are a fundamental aspect of all development. If human rights are not included as an essential element in the framework, we will replicate some of the failures of the MDGs. … We must transform business models, and change the way we do things. We need a new road map to the world we want…” (5/29).
