The solution relates to the quality of education provided on water conflict resolution. Diplomatic fundamentals such as knowledge and objectivity are surprisingly passed over in water diplomacy training and interventions. A return to these would help us move away from apparently apolitical attempts at conflict management, and towards water conflict resolution. One way the knowledge may be gathered is by undertaking ‘hydropolitical baselines’ that review and analyse the hydrologic, water use, and political record. Objectivity can be helped through appeal to and strengthening of international norms, such as customary water law.
