image of International Negotiation

As the competition over transboundary water resources to satisfy growing societal needs intensifies, hydropolitics in international river basins is demanding increasing attention from the international community. Third parties are being asked to play important roles in facilitating and supporting negotiations, and helping to develop and sustain bilateral and multilateral agreements aimed at cooperative development and sharing of water across international borders. This article highlights the great complexity of hydropolitics in international basins, as well as the constraints and opportunities embodied in all negotiations for sharing the multiple-use potential of transboundary water resources. The hope is that a sophisticated and context-sensitive understanding of hydropolitics on the part of mediators and negotiators, and national and international decision makers, can help tackle the challenges that lie ahead in this highly complex arena of international relations more effectively.
