Abstract

The AA examine the implications of hydro-political dependency for international water cooperation and conflict through insights from new data. To do so, they develop a new geo-spatial dataset for water catchments worldwide. They discuss the measurement concepts , illustrate how dependencies are distributed worldwide, and revisits three prominent quantitative studies on the issue to show how using improved data affects empirical findings. In contrast to a very popular presumption, upstream–downstream dependencies turn out to have a very small to insignificant effect on international water cooperation or conflict
