The United Nations General Assembly of 28 July 2010 adopted the declaration of the Human Rights to Water and Sanitation, further calling for knowledge, technological and financial partnerships and joint effort in realising this human rights especially in developing countries. Five years later (2015), the UN resolution was revised separating the two yet equally important rights (Water and Sanitation) and calling on the Member States to ensure that these rights are integrated into the national law, policy and development plans. In the same year, the African Ministers responsible for sanitation and hygiene signed a declaration to achieve universal access to adequate and sustainable sanitation and hygiene services and eliminate open defecation in the African continent by 2030 ( Ngor Declaration). And South Africa has enshrined human right to water and sanitation approach in its constitution more than a decade in advance of the UN declaration.
