      But even today, no water-sharing agreement exists between Egypt and Ethiopia (where some 85 percent of the Nile's flow originates), and a war . Even now, when the continents have been mapped and their interiors made accessible by road, river and air, most of the world's people live no more than miles from the sea and relate closely to it.

    Principles of International Law. Currently, water allocation is usually based on history and/or hydrography – the country’s position on the river [1]. Water allocation is based on historical grounds when countries claim that they have a right to water based on the fact that they had access to water .   Just as California has used stored water to become an agricultural powerhouse, Sudan will benefit by using the more stable flow of water from the new dam to raise its agricultural productivity. This will allow Sudan, which sits between Ethiopia and Egypt, to .

    The possibility of calculating an optimal allocation allows much more flexibility in water-sharing agreements. Instead of agreeing in advance on fixed water quantities, it is possible to adjust the quantities to the actual amount of water that flows through the river each year. Tweet Like Share # Shares: 0.

River water sharing is an issue that is dealt by the South Asian neighboring countries for the last four decades. Reaching agreement on sharing the waters of an international basin proves. International water law helps enable nations to peacefully share a river basin and the waters it contains.

The UN Convention (an international agreement) embraces several principles that will likely become the guiding force in managing international watercourses and resolving water conflicts.

The Helsinki Rules on the Uses of the Waters of International Rivers is an international guideline regulating how rivers and their connected groundwaters that cross national boundaries may be used, adopted by the International Law Association (ILA) in Helsinki, Finland in August In spite of its adoption by the ILA, there is no mechanism in place that enforces the rules.
