Item description for Second International Water Tribunal: The Case Books-7 Book Boxed Set (The Second International Water Tribunal) by International Books...
The fundamental right to access to sufficient and clean water is frequently transgressed. Dams are built, threatening ecological balances and forcing entire communities to migrate. Industries misuse and pollute water. Mining companies cause alterations in water levels and river courses. States use water as a political weapon, exercising power by denying others access. Against this background, an international jury heard 22 cases of water mismanagement in Asia, Latin America, Africa and the Pacific. Each case was supported by solid scientific and legal evidence. These cases, the jury pronouncements, and the defendants reactions are now available in the four Case Books: Dams, Pollution, Mining and Management. The series provides invaluable information for water professionals, environmental NGOs, policy makers, and students of the environment, international law, development and third world issues.
