Abstract This thesis explores the larger number of issues that underpin the allocation of water, water rights, and conflict over water. After specifying the weak points in the existing relevant legal instruments, this thesis take into consideration the inclusion of economic, culture-religion and political contextual precepts as a remedy to the legal deficiency. The aim is to discover patterns of cooperation among the riparian adversaries, to generate a working hypothesis on cooperation over water issues.

This thesis argues that no single set of actors holds the key to effectively addressing the challenge of equitable and sustainable management of precious water resources. It is also important to realize that it is not enough just to seek to increase the availability and usability of water.

However, it is also the case that the private sector, non-governmental organizations, international agencies and national agencies can play a major role both as investors and as managers of utilities. In fact, many would agree that it is the common responsibility of all actors in society: businesses, governments, scholars, researchers and individuals, to contribute to the elaboration of numerous solutions. In addition to learning from their efforts and efforts in other regions, interested parties can promote a new water and environmental ethic, educate the broad population and facilitate discussion.
