A Successful Multidimensional Regime?

A multidimensional legal regime for the protection and management of transboundary freshwater resources has started emerging in Europe since 2000. It is composed of international water law, the water law of the European Union, and domestic water legislation. Accordingly, qualitative and quantitative aspects regarding surface waters and groundwater are to be managed in an integrated manner to achieve “good water status” of rivers, lakes and aquifers. To this end, “international river basin management plans” provided for by the EU Water Framework Directive are developed by international river commissions for Europe’s major transboundary river basins. The article analyzes the various dimensions of the regime and attempts to answer the question of whether it has succeeded in achieving its ambitious goals.
