Abstract

International freshwater resources law started to emerge at the beginning of the nineteenth century. In the last two decades it has experienced considerable change. This paper will focus on some of the characteristics of these latest developments, which concern primarily the protection and management of freshwater resources, by looking at the interplay of norms adopted at three levels where important new instruments have been adopted: the universal, regional and basin levels.
