Show Summary Details


This chapter covers areas which may not necessarily be covered as part of water law, seen in a narrow sense, but are intrinsically related to water. The first section focuses on inland fishing, one of the main water-based resources, which is intrinsically linked to water itself and hence to water law. The second section examines extractive industries, with a focus on mining and the impact that extraction has on water quality and water resources. The third section addresses the broad linkage between energy and water and highlights in particular hydropower and the links between electricity and access to groundwater.

Keywords: water law; inland fishing; mining; extraction; water resources; energy; hydropower; electricity; groundwater
