Article 36

36.2 Application

The UN Watercourses Convention secures 35 instruments of accession, approval, acceptance and ratification. However, the 35th instrument of accession came from the European Union. Given that the European Union is classified as a ‘Regional Economic Integration Organisation’, it is determined that the Convention will not enter into force until an additional contracting state, accedes, approves or accepts this instrument.
