* The Law of Transboundary Aquifers

On 11 December the United Nations General Assembly, at its sixty-third session, adopted by consensus the Resolution on the law of transboundary aquifers. The Assembly took note of the draft articles annexed to the resolution, and commended them to the attention of Governments without prejudice to the question of their future adoption or other appropriate action. It encouraged concerned States to make appropriate bilateral or regional arrangements for proper management of their transboundary aquifers and decided to include the item in the provisional agenda of the Assembly’s sixty-sixth session.
