Human Rights to Water and Sanitation Coalition Submit Comment to National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights

On January 15, 2016 the US Human Rights Network National Human Rights to Water and Sanitation Coalition submitted a stakeholder submission  with recommendations to President Obama on the National Action Plan on Responsible Business Conduct (NAP) regarding the Human Rights to Water and Sanitation.We hope that our submission will be useful in promoting and improving the important role of the NAP in protecting low-income communities of color and Indigenous Peoples in the U.S. from violations of their basic human rights, including impacts on the right to life deriving from violations of the rights to safe, affordable, and adequate drinking water and sanitation.

Learn more about the NAP and view other NAP submissions at the International Corporate Accountability Roundtable's (ICAR) NAP website: http://nationalactionplan.us

Visit the U.S. Department of State’s NAP webpage to learn more and view answers to “Frequently Asked Questions“ about the U.S. NAP: http://www.humanrights.gov/dyn/issues/business-and-human-rights/national-action-plan.html
