Water as a Human Right: Ten Principles
Statement from Dennis Kucinich
06/27/03


All water shall be considered to be forever in the public domain.

It shall be the duty of each nation to provide accessible, affordable drinking water to its peoples.

There shall be public ownership of drinking water systems, subject to municipal control.

Wealthy nations shall provide poor nations with the means to obtain water for survival.

Water shall be protected from commodification and exempted from all trade agreements.

Water privatization shall not be a condition of debt restructuring, loan renewal or loan forgiveness.

Governments shall use their powers to prevent private aggregation of water rights.

Water shall be conserved through sustainable agriculture and encouraging plant-based diets.

Water resources shall be protected from pollution.

Our children should be educated about the essential nature of water for maintaining life.
