*Seminar on “Transboundary Aquifers and International Law: The Experience of the Guarani Aquifer System”, University of Surrey, Guildford, UK, 31 August, 2010

This seminar will bring together an interdisciplinary group of international water experts to discuss the experience gained by the Guarani Aquifer System states in the light of the current developments on international law of transboundary aquifers. Speakers will include experts who have collaborated with the United Nations International Law Commission in the work that has led to the adoption by the UN General Assembly of the Draft Articles on the law of transboundary aquifers, and experts whose work focuses on the Guarani Aquifer System.

The seminar will be organized by the Environmental Regulatory Research Group (ERRG) of the University of Surrey, UK, and is part of the Group project “The Environmental Protection of the Guarani Aquifer: A Legal Perspective”. The seminar contributes to the UNESCO-IHP ISARM (Internationally Shared Aquifers Resource Management) Programme, and it will constitute the official launch of the Surrey Centre for the Regulation of Transboundary Aquifers (SCERTA).
