Article 11

11.1.2 Planned measures

The term ‘measures’ has to be interpreted rather broadly and includes any new (major or minor) projects or programmes, as well as changes in existing uses of an international watercourse.262 Such measures might therefore include hydropower developments, river regulation, deforestation adjacent to an international watercourse, establishment of industrial plants likely to affect the quality or quantity of a river, and so forth.
