The Forum will focus on the impact of the lack of access to water and the violation of human rights. The absence or lack of protection of the resource in vulnerable populations will also be addressed, analyzing concrete scenarios with perspectives from the Law, policies and strategies for the solution of these situations in short, medium and long-term time horizons.
