On the November 6, as the International Day for Preventing the Exploitation of the Environment in War and Armed Conflict, Association of Reintegration of Crimea sent officially the expert answers on questionnaire to UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and the Environment, Dr. David Boyd.

Such ARC’s submission was devoted to «facilitate the work of the UN Special Rapporteur to provide additional clarity regarding the substantive rights and obligations that are essential to the enjoyment of a safe, clean, healthy and sustainable environment».

ARC’s reply, devoted to the problem of the water scarcity in Crimea, caused by the ill-considered Russian military, economic and demographic policy will inform the Special Rapporteur on this issue and shall contribute to his report «Too Dirty, Too Little, Too Much: The Global Water Crisis and Human Rights», which will be presented to the Human Rights Council in March 2021.

ARC’s experts reminded to the UN Special Rapporteur in this ARC’s submission that since 2014 Ukraine agreed to allow visit of any UN Special Rapporteur to own territory without any prejudicial negotiations. So ARC invited the Honourable Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and the Environment to visit Ukraine and research the situation with water rights for Crimean Residents.

Analytics and facts devoted to the ill-considered Russian water policy in Crimea were attached by experts to this submission.
