    Water as Human Right Threatens to Split World Body
    by Thalif Deen

    UNITED NATIONS - A long outstanding proposal to recognize the right to water as a basic universal human right is threatening to split the world's rich and poor nations.

(photo by Flickr user Gary Edenfield)Opposition to the proposal is coming mostly from Western nations, says Maude Barlow, a global water advocate and a founder of the Canada-based Blue Planet Project.

    "Canada is the worst. But Australia, the United States and Great Britain are also holding up the process," she said.

    "I am loath to see this as a North-South issue, but it is beginning to look like it," Barlow told IPS.

    If the draft resolution is eventually adopted by the 192- member U.N. General Assembly, "it would be one of the most important things the United Nations has done since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights," she said.

    The two-page draft, described as "historic", recognizes "the human right to water and sanitation," and is being initiated by Bolivia.

    A final text of the draft, currently under discussions, is expected to be presented to the president of the General Assembly, Ali Abdussalam Treki, by the end of July - if it clears the political hurdles.

    Speaking off-the-record, a diplomatic source told IPS: "This is something very dear to developing countries."

    It's already there

    The 3rd world nations walked out of that Copenhagen, world climate change conference because the IMF, and Trlats wanted to dump Cap and Trade on them;
