Global water law collection
Water law is the field of law dealing with the ownership, control, and use of water as a resource. It is most closely related to property law, but has also become influenced by environmental law.

This series presents selected documents under international law, such as environment and human rights provisions, concerning the economic, environmental and social consequences of proposed water regulatory changes.
