The study examined the International legal regime and a host of principle of laws and regulations regarding water resources. Other significant influences’ were also examine The study established that in both basins, there were pre — colonial agreements which were crafted purposely to suit the colonial interests and post -colonial agreements have neither resolved the disparities, nor come up with alternative ways of settling the dispute. The study came up with recommendations which could be used as basis for States to craft future agreements for the water resources.
