Abstract

<jats:p> Against the backdrop of the content and specific obligations arising from the right to water in international law, this article compares how the legal regimes in Finland and South Africa protect the right to water. The discussion shows that both countries provide two extensive and very different constitutional frameworks to regulate the right to water. Variances in approach at the domestic level is attributed to differences in legal cultures, hydrological circumstances and stages of socioeconomic development. It is argued that diverse development challenges may justify the need for different legislative and other measures to realise the right to water at the domestic level. </jats:p>
