Abstract
This paper covers legal and institutional means of resolving and preventing disputes over Africa's shared river basins. An increased potential for water development and management disputes in Africa exists mainly because of increases in population growth, demand for increasingly scarce water resources, and competition over such resources for development initiatives. Therefore, developing and enforcing water agreements is critical to basin nations.
