Chapter 5: Intertwined general principles
This chapter surveys the basic principles of the law of international watercourses and shows how they are interrelated. For the purposes of the chapter, the basic principles of the law in this field are considered to be equitable and reasonable utilization, prevention of significant harm, cooperation in good faith, and notification of planned measures. These principles are demonstrated to be not only interrelated, but also mutually supportive. This discussion is set against the background of a survey of the four principle theoretical bases of the law of international watercourses.
