Negotiating water rights


Water is essential for life and livelihoods. As demands for water increase — for drinking, domestic use, irrigation, industry, and environmental conservation — areas that were once water-abundant are increasingly challenged by conflicting claims and the need to better allocate water resources. This book offers examples of how several countries are handling this challenge. Negotiating Water Rights analyzes how water users can come together to negotiate fair and productive solutions to water conflicts.
