The Council for Canadians has published a report, Water for Sale with an accompanying infographic How Trade Agreements Threaten Water, detailing outcomes of ISDS corporate court decisions and explaining how countries can become locked in to irreversible commercialisation of their water supply. The report calls for “a binding treaty on transnational corporations and human rights”, arguing that conditions currently favourable to such a move. It concludes:
