'SECOND EDITION of 'Les principes du droit et de l'administration des eaux - Droit interne et droit international' by Dante Caponera, revised and updated by Marcella Nanni, Editions Johanet, Paris, November, 2009
The purpose of this book, which was first published in 1992, is to provide a tool for dealing with the legal and institutional aspects of water resources management to those who are called upon to carry out functions within the context of water resources administration and to face the legal issues raised by water management. Given that there have been a number of developments in the field of water law, policy and administration since 1992, year of its first issue (in English), the book has been revised and updated to reflect elements of growing topical importance, such as groundwater management, river basin planning, water quality protection and the participation of stakeholders in decision making.
