"Water Resources Law, 2nd edition is a book about over the past twenty years Australian parliaments have undertaken a national program of fundamental law reform about water resources law to address the competing interests of humans and our ecosystems. The resultant state and territory legislation is the product of the most significant reforms since water resources statutes were first enacted over a century ago. The Commonwealth Parliament has entered the field of water resource management and, with the support of some state-referred legislative powers, has enacted a framework for the national oversight of water resources management . The authors explain in practical terms how the new water resources legislation seeks to implement the national reform policies. Completely reviewed and updated to include areas such as the emergence of water markets, the 2013 Intergovernmental Agreement on Implementing Water Reform in the Murray-Darling Basin, and the future of National Water Policy, this second edition of Water Resources Law is an invaluable resource for practitioners, academics, environmentalists, students and anyone interested in tracing the legal history and policy development of these reforms." - Publisher's website.

Water is an essential resource for mankind, yet many countries around the world are currently facing mounting freshwater management challenges, with climate change and new regional imbalances threatening to aggravate this situation further. This timely book offers a unique interdisciplinary inquiry into the issues and challenges water regulation will face in the coming years. The book brings together economists, political scientists, geographers, and legal scholars to offer a number of proposals for the future of water regulation. The contributions in this book are grouped around specific themes. In the Part I, the contributions address the challenges which water poses to public international law. In Part II, the authors explore the most pressing ethical, legal, and social issues. Finally, the discussion in Part III covers the economic drivers shaping the future of water. This discerning book covers all of the primary actors in the water world, including governments, companies, international organizations, and citizens. With an original introduction by the editor and bringing a diverse collection of perspectives into a single collection, the book will be an essential resource for scholars and practitioners in legal and policy fields such as trade and investment, human rights and the environment, as well as in international relations.
