What is the IWLP?

Created and directed by Gabriel Eckstein, the mission of the International Water Law Project (IWLP) is to serve as the premier resource on the Internet for international water law and policy issues. Its purpose is to educate and provide relevant resources to the public and to facilitate cooperation over the world’s fresh water resources. As the subject evolves and develops, the IWLP will continue to update its pages and databases. We welcome and appreciate contributions and submissions including new publications, URLs, news stories, cases, corrections, and comments. To contact the IWLP, please use our contact form.
