UNESCO Centre for Water Law, Policy and Science, University of Dundee: Fifth Annual International Law and Transboundary Freshwaters Workshop, 9-13 June, 2014
The Fifth Annual International Law and Transboundary Freshwaters Workshop will be organized jointly by the UNESCO Centre for Water Law, Policy and Science of the University of Dundee, UK, and the Global Water Partnership and will be held at the University of Dundee on 9-13 June, 2014. Its purpose will be to explore the content, contribution and benefit of international law within the context of existing and potential challenges faced by transboundary basins (rivers, lakes and aquifers) throughout the world. A key focus will be on exploring not only the content of the law, but also the range of challenges faced in its implementation. It will benefit from the collective knowledge and expertise of world-renowned speakers all of whom have a ‘real world’ focus.
The workshop will target those concerned with the world’s international watercourses, especially water resources experts, lawyers and non-lawyers, practitioners – including civil servants, policy makers, regulators and water suppliers – as well as academics, who wish to gain fresh insights into how international law can contribute to addressing existing and future challenges over the world’s transboundary freshwater resources.
