The UN Convention on the Law of the Non-Navigational Uses of International Watercourses

Boisson de Chazournes, Mbengue, Tignino, Sangbana (eds), and Rudall (asst ed): The UN Convention on the Law of the Non-Navigational Uses of International Watercourses: A Commentary, Oxford University Press.

The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Non-Navigational Uses of International Watercourses plays a critical role in protecting and managing international watercourses and other sources of fresh water. The editors of this Commentary, Laurence Boisson de Chazournes, Makane Mbengue, Mara Tignino, and Komlan Sangbana, with the assistance of Jason Rudall, have examined together with a team of renowned experts and practitioners, the travaux préparatoires leading to the Convention as well as the practice that has developed since its adoption in 1997. Tackling the rationale, scope and content of the provisions, the Commentary offers a unique insight on the Convention’s impact in the elaboration of a universal regime for shared water resources.
