Abstract

The South African constitutional right to water is often referred to as an excellent example of national incorporation of economic and social rights into domestic law. This paper, whilst not negating this fact, nevertheless considers whether through constitutional restraints, alternative and pluralistic - though invariably less simplistic - approaches, such as a commons approach to water sharing would ensure a fairer and more sustainable allocation of water resources
