In Adapting Watercourse Agreements to Developments in International Law: The Case of the Itaipu Treaty Maria A.

The analysis offers a unique opportunity to assess the value of the UN Watercourses Convention in recommending states adapt their agreements to the provisions of the convention promoting equitable and reasonable uses of watercourses; an interest not only for the treaty partners but also for river basin states and the international community as a whole.
