Water And The Law: Toward Sustainability considers some of the main topics relating to the relationship between law and the management of water resources in the context of ensuring environmental sustainability. It highlights the central importance of integrated water resources management and co-operation in achieving sustainability.
The book considers two broad themes that are critical for life on Earth: how law can contribute to the sustainability of water itself.
