there are a couple of agreements that
are out there that countries can use as as guidelines on how they might want to
resolve a trans boundary water challenge there’s a UN Convention that’s just come
into force, there’s a convention that was developed by the UNECE, the UN body that
deals with Europe and the United States and both these conventions have
value in and as a template for how you might look at solving your own
particular problem but these things are very context specific in each case is
very very unique and so while some of these guidelines exist they don’t have
answers and it’s the countries themselves will really have to work to
come up with answers to address some of the challenges that these agreements and
treaties identify that could come up in a trans boundary situation
