Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper examines the fit between water and environmental quality issues as articulated in the Law of the Non-navigational Uses of International Watercourses approved by the United Nations General Assembly in 1997 and the water provisions that were included in the Israel-Jordan Treaty of 1994 and the Israel-Palestinian Authority Accord of 1995. It also examines the differences and commonalities of the two agreements with regard to these issues and examines the process of implementation to date.
