Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile: Study identifies Chile as the only country with express private ownership of water rights

A group of researchers from the Center for Water Law and Management of the Catholic University (UC), made up of the faculties of Law, Engineering, Agronomy and Forest Engineering, History, Geography and Political Science, and Economics and Administration, prepared an analysis on “Water and Constitution”, to identify how this natural resource is included in the fundamental charts of the world.

So far, the study has reviewed the situation in the countries of three continents, within the framework of the constitutional process currently underway in Chile. In total, the current regulations of 92 nations were addressed, 35 of them corresponding to America, 43 from Europe and 14 from Oceania.

“To detect in a comprehensive way the provisions that the constitutional texts have, we focus on the areas of water itself, sanitation and general references to natural resources,” explained Daniela Rivera, director of the Center for Water Law and Management UC.
