New publication: International Law and Transboundary Aquifers, by F. Sindico, Edward Elgar publishers, 2021

This book offers a comprehensive study of the emerging body of international law applicable to transboundary aquifers. Adopting a scenario-based approach, it analyzes a diverse set of transboundary aquifer agreements and arrangements. With just a handful of such agreements and arrangements around the world, it highlights the importance of identifying a normative roadmap for countries that want to engage in the joint management of a transboundary aquifer. The book also offers an in-depth analysis of the ILC Draft Articles on the Law of Transboundary Aquifers and it provides insight into how this body of law is evolving. This publication is of particular interest for researchers and experts from academia, government, inter-governmental bodies, civil society and NGOs wishing to deepen their understanding of the laws relating to transboundary aquifers.
