4th Annual International Law & Transboundary Freshwaters Workshop, co-organised with Global Water Partnership

Mon, 10/06/2013 / Fri, 14/06/2013

International law related to transboundary freshwater serves three basic functions:
(1) it defines and identifies the legal entitlements and rights and obligations tied to water use, providing the prescriptive parameters for its development;
(2) it provides a framework for ensuring the continuous integrity of the regime, i.e. through monitoring, regulation, compliance, stakeholder participation, dispute avoidance and settlement;
(3) it allows for rational modifications of the existing regime, in order to be able to adapt to the constantly changing needs and circumstances.
The purpose of the Workshop will be to explore these three functions of international law within the contextof existing and potential challenges faced by transboundary basins (rivers, lakes and aquifers) throughout the world. It will benefit from the collective knowledge and expertise of world-renowned speakers, all of whom have a ‘real world’ focus.
The International Water Law workshop forms part of one of the three core subject areas of our Water Law Water Leaders (WLWL) programme, alongside modules in National Water Law and the Regulation of Water Services.
