Competing Uses, Users and Legal Responses: Plachimada and Rajsamand Lake.. Multiple uses of a single source of water often result in competition between uses and such competition may eventually lead to confrontation between users.. The parties to this competition and confrontation  ...   sanitation-related law, policy or programme.. The existing legal framework partly deals with this issue in the context of criminal laws, which seek to punish the offenders depending on the facts and circumstances of the case and the available evidence.. Based on the provisions of criminal laws, a number of cases have been decided by courts.. Criminal laws perform a specific function of providing justice to the victim by punishing the offender for a criminal offence.. They are not expected to engage with the root cause of the offence, which in this case is physical violence associated with the practice of open defecation.. This case study seeks to document the decisions of the Supreme Court and High Courts in order to highlight the magnitude of the problem and determine the extent to which the existing legal framework provides justice to the victims and deters the commission of such offences in the future.. It also examines the extent to which this problem has been addressed under the existing laws and policies concerning sanitation in India.. The significance of this case study lies in the fact that although the underlying rationale for several of the existing sanitation policies and programmes is the need to address the issue of women's safety, in most cases, this is merely used as a justification to introduce the policy or programme.. The actual implementation often does not result in any significant improvements in the status quo.. The number of criminal cases concerning sexual violence where the victim resorted to open defecation in the absence of sanitation facilities is evidence of this failure.. size: 1166 [KB].. Groundwater Law in India Towards a Framework Ensuring Equitable Access and Aquifer Protection.. Groundwater law in India gives individual landowners overwhelming control over groundwater.. This is inappropriate in a context where groundwater is now the main source of water for the realisation of the human right to water.. This also fails to provides the basis for effective protection of groundwater at aquifer level.. Increasing dependence on groundwater for all the main water uses has made the need for reforms of the legal framework increasingly acute.. This article argues that groundwater law must be reconceived around a new set of principles that recognise the common nature of groundwater, its importance in realising the human right to water, the need for a governance framework starting at the local level and the need for a strong aquifer protection regime.. The proposed new framework is then examined in the context of the Groundwater Model Bill, 2011 that reflects in large part this new framework.. size: 133 [KB].. Final Word: Democracy, Legitimacy and International Climate Change Law and Policy.. Currently, there is a bewildering array of institutions that are involved in climate change work.. The picture at the international level is that of a fragmented regime of institutions.. Such a large and fragmented network has brought with it problems of co-ordination and effectiveness.. It has proved incredibly difficult to distil the many interests of the participants in these institutions into coherent and coordinated action, with the result that many of the ambitious targets for climate change have sadly been missed.. More worryingly, however, it has become apparent that the many initiatives at the international level have tended to leave behind the polities that are most vulnerable to the effects of climate change; the poorest and least able to adapt to the reality of our changing climate.. As a result, key global governance structures are often viewed sceptically by developing countries because the interests of the richest countries remain embedded in processes and outputs of leading international institutions such as the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.. It is therefore very important that in addition to fashioning creative and innovative solutions to the problems of climate change, that institutions involved in climate change work ensure that they actively take steps to enhance the legitimacy of their work.. It matters not whether the illegitimacy of international institutions is real or perceived, what the evidence shows is that it robs them of the political will needed to maximise their effectiveness.. size: 152 [KB].. Le principe des responsabilités communes mais différenciées en droit international de l environnement: enjeux et perspectives.. La différenciation entre différents groups de pays constitue une des bases du droit international de l environnement actuel.. Dans la plupart des cas, c est une distinction entre pays développés et pays en développement qui structure les traités depuis les années 1980.. Cette différenciation est fermement ancrée dans la structure du droit international de l environnement qui ne peut être compris sans référence aux diverses mesures prises pour prendre en compte la situation spéciale des pays en développement et des pays les moins avancés..

IELRC works on general policies and issues as well as specific case studies to highlight the necessity to go from the general to the specific and the converse:.. IELRC has worked on general conceptual issues such as the role of property rights in environmental management or the place of equity in international environmental agreements.. IELRC has also worked on much more specific developments at the national and regional level such as the development of biosafety frameworks and the introduction of WTO-mandated intellectual property rights in agriculture.. IELRC is aware that the existence of appropriate legal frameworks do not ensure their implementation.. The issue of national and local implementation of international and national standards has also figured prominently in IELRC's work programme:..

IELRC has a network of regional and national expertise in different regions of the world:.. IELRC provides its network of scholars engaged in academic research a platform for the dissemination of their publications through its website..

  • Title: IELRC.ORG - Activities & Events
    Descriptive info: Activities Events.. Issues and Challenges Relating to Groundwater Management in the Context of Climate Change.. For more information on the workshop,.. Mining, Law and Equity: Challenges and Opportunities.. The Law, Environment and Development Centre (LEDC), SOAS-University of London is organising a one day workshop on Mining, Law and Equity on 19 May 2014 at SOAS.. Mining is at the very centre of the process of development because it is seen as a key driver of economic development while often having disastrous human and/or environmental consequences.. It has escaped significant policy attention for a long time because mining often takes place in the remotest areas inhabited by people who are usually the least able to assert their rights legally or politically.. In addition, the environmental and/or human consequences may not be immediately visible, necessitating legal frameworks to address long-term consequences.. This workshop will explore a broad set of law, policy and governance issues.. It will bring together a mix of researchers, lawyers, campaigners, and professionals from UK, Europe and Asia to take this debate forward.. This workshop will bring together experts on climate change law and policy and experts on groundwater law and policy to discuss and debate legal, policy and institutional issues concerning groundwater in the context of climate change.. Major issues that will be discussed include international law and policy (for instance, the International Law Commission rules), regional regimes (for instance, the Guarani aquifer) and domestic legal regimes.. Workshop on the International and Comparative Perspectives of the Right to Sanitation, 2013.. This workshop organised at SOAS, University of London in May 2013 was based on five briefing papers written by IELRC members.. These five briefing papers can be found on the following links:..
