The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water

River Basin Organizations

Book Chapter on Role of RBOs in Solving Disputes in Shared Basins

Water plays a key role in most of the world’s environmental and socioeconomic challenges – ranging from food security to climate change adaptation and from regional cooperation to energy generation. The legal and policy framework for managing water resources at the local, the national and the transboundary level is, however, still underexplored. The recently published Routledge Handbook of Water Law and Policy aims to address this gap by providing a comprehensive overview of water law and policy and their contributing to sustainable development.
