Managing Freshwater Ecosystems of International Water Resources – The Case of the Maputo River in Mozambique
Freshwater ecosystems form a basis for the natural water circulation, and their maintenance is a prerequisite for a sustainable use of the world's water resources. Furthermore, they provide a multitude of goods and services that benefit humankind and are critical for the conservation of biological diversity. The protection of freshwater ecosystems has to be tackled internationally, where they are associated with transboundary watercourses. This study reviews the key demands placed on management strategies that provide for the protection of freshwater ecosystems, and it examines whether relevant international agreements can serve as a legal framework for an ecosystem-oriented management of international water resources.
