_synopsis:

«In order to secure the right to life stated in article 3 of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, one needs to have access to both the natural resources and the manufactured goods that are considered to be indispensable to life. Natural resources that fall into this category could, then, be considered as some sort of common capital for existence, which implies a specific approach to both its exploitation and its distribution. Water, in almost all of its forms and all of its uses, and land should probably be the first of these natural resources to be listed amongst common capital items. As a matter of fact claims have long been made to consider water and land as human rights in fact. Water has actually reached that recognition in 2010 but land still hasn't. In this paper we will show how a human rights based approach can be used to analyse the role of water and land in the development process and most of all what are the policy consequences of the adoption of this approach. A Human Rights Based Approach to Natural Resources becomes then a tool for both the authorities to design development policies and the citizens to scrutiny public intervention.»
