Access to clean water and sanitation is now, rightly, considered a Human Right but it still remains is a major problem in many parts of the world, for more than one in ten people. In this context, Portugal has the capacity and the will to help change this for the better, with water companies and professionals joining together in the PWP Portuguese Water Partnership to offer Portugal’s water sector expertise where it can have the greatest impact.


Catarina de Albuquerque, the first United Nations special rapporteur on the human rights to water and sanitation has recently been recognized with the Global Water Award 2016 of the International Water Association for her “exceptional role as the driving force behind the recognition of the Human Rights to Water and Sanitation". Seen as a visionary leader and advocate influencing policy makers who has had a significant impact on the world of clean water, she helped to enshrine the right to water and sanitation in the Sustainable Development Goals, in order to align all our efforts.
