Treaties pertaining to international waters are difficult to implement, often leading to disputes over the unexpected interpretation of their provisions. These disputes generally revolve around the issues of water governance, management and sharing, and environmental concerns, and in many cases, call for the intervention of international tribunals and bodies to resolve them, with the multiple objectives of breaking the tension, appeasing the parties, averting further deterioration of problems, and recommending a mechanism for good-faith implementation of such treaties.
