In recent decades, increased population and economic development have put a strain on the world's supply of freshwater. More people require water for more uses, whilst the amount and quality of existing freshwater resources have declined due to desertification, pollution and other effects of human activity. This book takes the view that well-constructed water legislation can be a powerful tool to alleviate problems related to water scarcity. This publication is designed to improve the dialogue between legal and technical experts in the area of water resource management. The ultimate objective is more effective and practical legislation that enables a greater number of people to meet their basic health and sanitation needs in a sustainable manner whilst protecting ecosystems and maintaining a healthy environment.
