Red Vida

Red Vida or Vigilancia Interamericana para la Defensa y el Derecho al Agua (Inter-American Vigilance for the Defense and the Right to Water) was formed in El Salvador in August 2003 when 54 organizations from 16 countries from all over Latin America met to launch a hemispherical campaign to defend water as a public good and a fundamental human right. The network is made up of consumer associations, women's organizations, environmentalists, labour unions, human rights activists, religious groups, indigenous and social organizations. Red Vida seeks to strengthen civil society groups in particular by coordinating activities and sharing information on the struggle for the right to water. Red Vida is based in Cochabamba, Bolivia.
