Abstract: This collection of papers analyzes the developments leading to the recommendation that water is a human right, and assesses the implications, the contexts, and implementation potential in the developing world, especially for the Middle East and North African region. Because of the importance of universal access to clean water, and differences of opinions on recent developments that water is a human right, the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), through its Cairo Office, decided to explore the main issues associated with this area in depth, including the formulation of a priority research agenda.
