Description: UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights General Comment No. 15 "provides guidelines for States Parties on the interpretation of the right to water under two articles of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights--Article 11 (the right to an adequate standard of living) and Article 12 (the right to health)." (Summary by Righttowater.org.uk.) In addition to health and sustenance, the General Comment finds a legal basis for the right to water in the right to take part in cultural life.
