SustainabilityFocusHumanRightsHistorically, water has been allocated putting the highest priority on human uses - water for domestic, agricultural and industrial purposes. Beginning in the 20th Century, environmental demands began to take precedence. The 21st Century brings changes in availability caused by climate change, increased awareness of environmental needs, and increases in human demand. The panel will discuss governance over water given the multiple pressures on this resource, considering climate change, economic development, environmental needs and human rights.

SUSTAINABILITY FOCUS sessions marked as such are part of the IBA Annual Conference 2022 sustainability focus on Tuesday and Thursday, grouping sessions discussing different aspects of ESG and sustainability across the different legal fields.
