„With the growth of the world population, the global climate change and the need for a greater healthy environment, access to water resources has become a crucial condition for the realization of an equitable international order, where the needs of the peoples are effectively addressed. In this regard, the need for international cooperation, including in joint effort with relevant non-state actors, is paramount to ensure water is made available to all without discrimination. Water is a human right, an enabling right, not a mere commodity.“

—  Alfred de Zayas, Statement by Alfred de Zayas on World Water Day 22 March 2013 http://www.ohchr.org/en/NewsEvents/Pages/DisplayNews.aspx?NewsID=13175.
