Drinking water supply and sanitation services

Commission on Human Rights decision 1999/108

At its 56th meeting, on 27 April 1999, the Commission on Human Rights, taking note of Sub-Commission on Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of Minorities resolution 1998/7 of 20 August 1998 and taking note with appreciation of the working paper submitted by Mr. El Hadji Guissé (E/CN.4/Sub.2/1998/7), notes that the issue of the right of individuals to drinking water supply and sanitation services remains undefined and therefore decided, without a vote, to request the Sub-Commission to give further consideration to this aspect in preparation for a study on the realization and promotion of this right.
