Abstract

This article discusses the key indicators of transboundary water apportionment based on international laws and cases (1864-2002). The results show that in North America and Europe, the indicators are “keepingmini-um"water flow” and “mean annual runoff”, but in Asia, Africa and South America, the major adopted indicators in the watersheds with insufficient water are “mean annual runoff” and “keeping minimum water flow”, the ones in the watersheds with sufficient water are “keeping minimum water flow” and “maximum water intake”. It concludes that the regional distribution of the treaties shifts mainly to Asia and Africa; the major adopted indicators shifts from “keeping minimum water flow” and “mean annual runoff” in 1864–1945, to “keeping minimum water flow” and “maximum water intake” in 1946–1971, then to “hydraulic facility operation” and “mean annual runoff” in 1972–1991, and finally to “keeping minimum water flow” and “mean annual runoff” in 1992–2002, the process shows similar a loop
