    Land and water: the rights interface 2004
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This paper is concerned with the interface between land tenure rights and water rights. Such rights relate to what are arguably the most important natural resources of the modern nation-state. Land, in the form of territory, is a pre-requisite for a state’s existence while freshwater is a pre-requisite for life. The relationship between these two resources is of equal significance. Water is necessary for most productive uses of land. In a growing number of countries with arid climates the main constraint to agricultural growth is the availability of water rather than land. To ensure sustainability, the need for an integrated approach to the use and management of these resources is increasingly recognised.
