This edited volume presents a comprehensive and comparative view of the law of international watercourses with special reference to the issues facing the Ganges River basin. It provides an analysis of the development of international waterways law and outlines the essentials of the UN Convention on non-navigational uses of international watercourses. Focusing on relations between the three riparian states of the River Ganges and the potential for cooperation, the volume also examines the domestic legal regimes of the area and the political dimension to the issues of sharing the waters of the river. The work presents a comparative picture with an analysis of developments in the Rhine and Mekong basins, comparing developments in the legal regimes of these areas with the experience of South Asia. Presenting an up-to-date analysis of the current law and pointing the direction for future developments, this collection will be a valuable resource for academics, researchers and policy makers working in this area.

'This volume presents cutting edge scholarship in the area of international watercourses law by highly informed contributors who offer authoritative multi-layered analyses of the most pressing issues. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the contemporary challenges of transboundary water management in general and in the Indian sub-continent in particular. It makes a convincing case for the acute need to foster closer cooperation between the riparians of the River Ganges.' Eyal Benvenisti, Tel Aviv University, Israel
