At the Stockholm World Water Week
In the emerging global dialogue on water tenure, this session explores equity and integrity in water law, breaking the silos within the water sector and between water and other sectors.
Findings of empirical and legal analysis in South Africa, Tanzania, and elsewhere in low- and middle-income rural areas across the world point at the need for statutory protection of customary water tenure, universal core minimum resource rights to water and food, and targeted, strict, and administratively just regulation, as locally relevant.
