Module 6: Water Law & Governance Mechanisms
Module 6 elaborates on (international) water law and other governance mechanisms to support conflic-sensitive conflict management. Mechanisms discussed in this module include environmental and social impact assessment, as well as basin management planning, specifically discussing the case study of the Omo-Gibe Basin in Ethiopia.
- Lesson 6A: Role Of Water Law In Conflict Resolution
Water is political, and core water law principles play a considerable role in conflict resolution. Gabriela Cuadrado Quesada (IHE Delft) explains the the role of (inter)national law and its implication for conflict resolution.
- Lesson 6B: Environmental & Social Impact Assessments for Better Planning in a Conflict Sensitive Context
Environmental & Social Impact Assessments (ESIA) enable you to make better decisions and find ways to achieve your goals more sustainably. Bobbi Schijf of the Netherlands Commission for Environmental Assessment (NCEA) explains how ESIAs help understand environmental and social consequences of decisions through water-related case studies from all over the world.
- Lesson 6C: Basin Management Planning in Ethiopia: Case Study
Water availability and its equitable distribution are critical to sustainable growth, peace, and security. A basin management plan plays a vital role in this process. This is also true for Ethiopia, which is facing numerous challenges with regards to water security, particularly in the Omo-Gibe Basin. Zablon Adane (World Resources Institute Ethiopia) introduces the basin management plan process and explains how it can support conflict sensitivity, based on the case study of the Omo-Gibe Basin in Ethiopia.
