VINTI, Clive. The Treaty on the Lesotho Highlands Water Project and the principle of "equitable and reasonable utilisation". De Jure (Pretoria) [online]. 2021, vol.54, n.1, pp.328-346. ISSN 2225-7160.

The principle of "equitable and reasonable utilisation" has been proposed as a tool to resolve a conflict of uses since it advocates for fair and sustainable utilisation of shared water resources. This paper examines this proposition with a specific focus on the Treaty on the Lesotho Highlands Water Project, which regulates the use of the Orange River. To this end, it is my view that the principle of "vital human needs" as an incidence of the principle of "equitable and reasonable utilisation", proffers the most effective tool to resolve the anticipated conflict of uses in the Orange River basin.
