UN Watercourses Convention joined by the 35th country!

Posted: 2014-05-22  Type: News

We are happy to report that Viet Nam has acceded to the UN Watercourses Convention (UNWC).  This instrument will now go into force on 17 August 2014.  The UNWC resulted from decades of hard work to establish a framework for sharing watercourses.
For more information about the UN Watercourses convention, please read our last Policy Briefing (July 2014), the special issue of Water International from March 2013, or visit the UN Watercourses Convention Online User's Guide or this post at the International Water Law Project explaining the importance of the Convention going into force.
