Chapter Summary

A number of judicial decisions, conventions and treaties, and rules issued by the IIL and ILA, have dealt with the duty to notify. Notification is one way of ascertaining other riparians' planned use to ensure that such use would not appreciably harm the project. The prospective borrower, World Bank or a third party can do the notification. The Helsinki Rules indicate that a state should furnish to any other basin state notice of any proposed construction or installation. The notification should contain sufficient technical specifications, information and other data to enable the other riparians to determine whether the proposed project has potential for causing appreciable harm through water deprivation or pollution. The Bank classifies the responses received as positive response, no response, or an objection to the notification. It has addressed each of the situations with utmost care keeping in mind the interests of both the borrower and other members.
