The Guarani Aquifer Agreement, signed in 2010, was the first international treaty to refer in its Preamble to General Assembly Resolution 63/124 on the Law of Transboundary Aquifers. The Agreement includes substantive, procedural and institutional provisions providing Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay with a legal framework for the management of the vast Guarani Aquifer System. This chapter provides an analysis of these provisions, but also discusses socio-legal developments after 2010 and the extent to which the Guarani Aquifer System can be managed by the four countries in the absence of an in-force Guarani Aquifer Agreement.
