Le droit à l’eau et à l’assainissement en Europe, by H. Smets, Editions Johanet, Paris, 2012

Regional treaties have been concluded in Europe in order to render it obligatory for states to provide all with access to drinking water and sanitation. Henri Smets, member of the French Water Academy, has compiled in this book the essays of 25 authors, which show the way in which the right to water and sanitation is being dealt with in European countries and, in particular, in France. The book highlights shortcomings in the domestic legislation of these countries and suggests possible corrective actions. To order this book, visit http://www.editions-johanet.net/ouvrage/?id=54.
