Coordinating the UN's work on water and sanitation

Special Rapporteur follow-up of official country visits

The Special Rapporteur on the human rights to safe drinking water and sanitation, Mr. Léo Heller, has conducted two official country visits per year to examine the situation of the realization of the human rights to safe drinking water and sanitation.
The Special Rapporteur is seeking to enhance the effectiveness of his country visit by undertaking a follow-up analysis focused on the implementation of recommendations elaborated in the country visit reports.

In the first half of 2018, the Special Rapporteur commenced the follow-up analysis of the first five official country visits undertaken since 2015, namely, Botswana, El Salvador, Mexico, Portugal, and Tajikistan.

The Special Rapporteur intends to continue the follow-up analysis of all the official country visits undertaken by him as well as those undertaken by the former Special Rapporteur.
