Transboundary River Disputes; A Comparative Legal Analysis of Tigris - Eupharetes and the Nile Rivers Treaties.

ABSTRACT This study set out to examine the Trans boundary river disputes; a comparative analysis of Tigris-Euphrates and the Nile treaties. The study established that the riparian states comprising of the Nile basin and Tigris/Euphrates basin have for a decade discussed and failed to come up with an acceptable agreement between themselves on the use of the rivers traversing their territories. The study examined the International legal regime and a host of principals of laws and regulations regarding water resources. Other significant influences' were also examined The study established that in both basins, there were pre - colonial agreements which were crafted purposely to suit the colonial interests and post -colonial agreements have neither resolved the disparities, nor come up with alternative ways of settling the dispute. The study came up with recommendations which could be used as basis for states to craft future agreements for the water resources.
