Aside from the following documents,does anyone know of any document concerning the international treatment of the right to water and vulnerable people?

  • Universal Declaration of Human Rights 
  • Habitat Agenda
  • International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights
  • International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights
  • Dublin Statement on Water and Sustainable Development 
  • General Comment No. 15 on the Right to Water
  • Human right to water and sanitation, Resolution 64/292
  • Millennium Development Goals and post 2015 Development Agenda
  • Convention on the Protection and Use of Transboundary Watercourses and International Lakes (Water Convention)
  • UN Watercourses Convention 

 

I am currently examining the legal status and possibilities for vulnerable people regarding the right to water. Any assistance you might provide is greatly appreciated.
