    Abstract

    The demise of the Soviet Union created new international boundaries and, as a result, a host of legal problems related to the management and utilization of natural resources divided by these boundaries. This article surveys the most important transboundary water systems, shared by the former Soviet republics, and examines an emerging legal framework for cooperation, multilateral, regional and bilateral, between them. Although the current approach to the use of transboundary water resources is still influenced by the practices established in the former Soviet Union, there is a tendency towards greater reliance upon international law in addressing water-related issues of common concern.
