Seminar report on transboundary aquifers and international law: the experience of the Guarani aquifer system, University of Surrey, Guildford, UK, 31 August 2010

Research output: Contribution to journalConference Contribution

Abstract

The world is currently facing a global water security challenge. Some regions are suffering water shortages, while others may have plentiful amounts of water, which is often of a contaminated nature. Competition over scarce water resources may lead to conflict between users, uses and communities that rely on that water, but may also lead to cooperation through the establishment of joint management strategies.
