This volume examines the rules of international law governing the navigational and non-navigational uses of international watercourses. Because two or more States share many of the world's most important drainage basins, competition for increasingly scarce fresh water resources is likely to increase. Agreements between the states sharing international watercourses will be negotiated, and disputes over shared water will be resolved, against the backdrop of the rules of international law governing the use of this precious resource.
