The aim of this chapter is to consider the extent to which the International Law Commission’s Draft Articles on the Non-navigational Use of International Watercourses might lead to discrimination between uses and users. Rather than meeting their main purpose - ensuring the equitable and reasonable use of resources - the ICL Draft Articles lead to bias in their allocation of use of resources. To demonstrate this, we shall focus on one distinct group of users - women - on one particular use - agricultural irrigation - and concentrate on a limited geographical area - less developed States.
