Legal Opportunities and Constraints for ORASECOM
ORASECOM’s legal mandate derives from the November 2000 Agreement. However, as the Member States have also ratified the Revised SADC Protocol on Shared Watercourses, and are bound by international customary law, these instruments also establish a legal framework for the organisation. A previous study on the legal basis for a Basin Wide Plan has recommended that the ORASECOM Agreement needs to be revised to bring it in line with the Revised SADC Protocol. The overall objective of this assignment is described as identify potential legal constraints and opportunities to implementing recommendations.
