Water covers about three-fourths of the earth's surface. Still, over one billion people do not have access to clean drinking water-a problem that many governments across the globe seem unable to redress. International Law, Sustainable Development and Water Management explores the political issues inherent in global water management, analysing water as a social, economic, and ecological good, and then applying the principles of international law to resource development policies. Antoinette Hildering's proposed framework for change, "Guardianship Over Water," offers policymakers practical guidelines for water management at a local, national, and international level.
Antoinette Hildering is the author of several publications on achieving sustainable development through international law and water management.
