The benefit-sharing principle : implementing sovereignty bargains on water

Auteurs :
ALAM, U.
DIONE, O.
JEFFREY, P.

Description :
The AA. examine an instance of international cooperation that exemplifies an alternative approach to international river management. The benefit-sharing principle focuses on allocating the outputs from water use, rather than the water itself ; and was used by the Senegal basin riparians to access key services such as electricity despite a context of poverty, climatic change and intra-basin politics. What emerges is a strong narrative of cooperation sustained, over decades, by the states' willingness to engage in sovereignty bargains.
