Right to Water
Water supply is a state’s responsibility. Allocation of safe water, or in the case of arsenic-affected regions of West Bengal having the lack of it, therefore has been at the centre of the crisis. The ‘Right to water’ as mentioned by United Nations is yet to be realised for the common man. In arsenic-infested regions the problem takes on even ominous implications. Moreover, with the ever burgeoning population and discovery of newer contaminants the water stress of the nation is growing by the hour. The book adheres to literature review and empirical evidences to elucidate the situation.
