N2 - The current legal basis for a right to water at international level is unclear. An analysis of the content of the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights General Comment 15, (based upon Articles 11 and 12 of the ICESCR 1966) indicates deficiencies within the content of the standard. Due to weaknesses, there is a lack of definition of the scope and core content of the right. Subsequent difficulties are raised concerning the right's status within current international human rights law. Therefore, there is an urgent need to define a coherent core and scope of the right that takes account of its relationship to directly related rights and subsequently clarifies its status as a fully autonomous right.
