Abstract/Summary

Water is essential for the sustenance of life. Hence, quality water should be available to everyone and this will only be fully realized if there is a law that will address human right to water. This study examines whether lack of Philippine statute with respect to right to water and regulatory policies in water management system violates the various interdependent human rights. It also examined if these statutes adhere to state obligations ratified by the Philippines relating to right to water. The study primarily referred to the Sections 15 and 16 of Article II of the 1987 Philippine Constitution, which are right to health and right to balanced and healthful ecology. Drawing from this, the lack of statues addressing right to water is violative. Thus, it is conclusive that the right to water is a basic human right and that this right should be recognized by the state.
