Senegal, Mali, Guinea and Mauritania gathered under the OMVS umbrella to jointly manage the Senegal River Basin. The four countries ratified the organisation’s founding Conventions (1972) and, in 2002, the Senegal River Water  Charter. This  late  endeavour  reflected  the  countries’  and  the  Basin’s secretariat’s will to complement the basin’s legal framework. The Charter serves as a facilitator at the disposal of Member States to assess international legislations that may be relevant for transboundary basins.

As a legal solution to address those concerns, WWF proposes the future adoption of a protocol to the UNWC, adapting its rules to all groundwaters relevant to international law. This protocol would take into account the draft articles and other legal sources, as a basis for renewed negotiations on the codification and development of international groundwater law, culminating in the adoption of the proposed protocol.
