The critical evaluation of the existing legal framework is followed by an analysis of key gaps in the existing legal framework. This paper also aims to suggest basic principles, norms and approaches that should form as underlying elements of a comprehensive groundwater law capable of ensuring sustainability, equity and human rights.
