Salman, lead counsel and water law adviser for The World Bank, provides policymakers and financial professionals with an overview of Bank policy for projects on international waterways. The author reviews the policies that were released in 1956, 1965 and 1985 and compares these principles with concurrent international policies. This volume also discusses the notification process employed by The World Bank and describes the different riparians' responses and how these objections and exceptions are handled. A final section provides a summary with the lessons learned over the last 50 years in regards to transboundary groundwater issues and environmental impact assessments.
