    Greetings from Australia,

    I wanted to share with you a new set of materials on the human rights to water and sanitation available here: http://www.righttowater.info/making-rights-real/

    These materials were developed with an understanding that human rights to water and sanitation can only be delivered if those with the duty to deliver them are themselves empowered and inspired to do so. They show how human rights principles can be applied to the day-to-day work of local government officials, and how they can then better prioritise reaching people least likely to have services while making the best use of scarce resources. Using the type of audience analysis used by communication and marketing specialists, the materials were designed to inspire and guide local heroes in government so that clean water and sanitation become reality for everyone.

    The materials were developed through the ‘Making Rights Real’ project by a consortium of organisations including WaterAid, WASH United, End Water Poverty, Institute for Sustainable Futures, UNICEF and the Rural Water Supply Network.
