Registration notes: In 2010 the United Nations General Assembly declared safe and clean drinking water and sanitation a human right essential to the full enjoyment of life and all other rights. Yet little has been done to enforce it, leaving billions at risk of water insecurity in the 21st century. The Agua tartan symbolises the crucial importance of water to human development and wellbeing. Eight lines intersect to form nine boxes. The centre box represents water; the surrounding ones the UN’s eight Millennium Development Goals addressing the needs and rights of the world’s poorest. This tartan is named in honour of the guerreros del agua (‘water warriors’) of Cochabamba, Bolivia, who wrested control of the municipal water system after the central government, under pressure from international development institutions, sold it off to an investment consortium led by Bechtel Corporation.
