Argument: Limited water resources are distributed unequally among nations, making national ownership of water unfair
- "National Sovereignty of International Watercourses". International Greencross. 2000 - "Water is disproportionately distributed throughout the world. As an element in regional cooperation, and a gesture of solidarity, this natural imbalance could be at least partially rectified through a system of trade-offs between states well-endowed with water and their more water-stressed neighbours who may have other tradable assets to offer as compensation."
