Service regulation and the human rights to water and sanitation

This report by the Special Rapporteur on the human rights to water and sanitation, Léo Heller, focuses on the role of service regulation in the progressive realisation of the human rights to water and sanitation. The Special Rapporteur report first outlines the human rights obligations of States, regulatory actors and service providers in the context of service regulation. He provides an overview of the role of regulation in water and sanitation services, identifies different types of regulatory frameworks and discusses how they relate to the human rights standards. He discusses the core functions of regulatory actors. Finally, he presents recommendations to States and regulatory actors regarding those issues.
