The purpose of this special session is to capture some of the most recent trends and developments in water law and policy, both at a national, transboundary, regional and global levels; and to consider how water law and policy might have to evolve in order to address future water-related challenges or respond to advances in scientific knowledge and understanding. The session will draw upon the outputs of a recently published Handbook on Water Law and Policy (Routledge 2017), which reflects a collaboration amongst over 35 leading experts in the field, both academics and practitioners.
