WaterLex Country Mappings were legal and governance studies aimed at providing advice to law and policy makers on existing legislative and governance gaps to secure the implementation of the human right to water and sanitation in their specific national legal framework. Over the years, WaterLex developed its distinctive methodology which combined two distinct phases: (1) Identification and gathering of international and national instruments relevant for the research (2) Identification of water governance gaps guided by strategic questions from the WaterLex Legal Methodology. The studies therefore not only reviewed the main laws that related to water and the environment, they also included as appropriate other laws such as those addressing health, access to information, children rights a.o. The list of reviewed laws can be found in the list of references at the end of each report.
