WATERLEX is a searchable database established by specialist legal experts from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). WATERLEX can be used to examine the national legislation on water resources of any particular country or across any number of countries, comparing one or more features of the country’s or countries’ national legislation on water resources. WATERLEX can also be searched by region. Where possible, access to the text of the legislation being analysed is provided, through a link to FAO’s own database of national legislation on natural resources, FAOLEX.
Tip: Use the little buttons marked “List” rather than typing words into the search box.
FISHLEX is the first electronic edition of Coastal State Requirements which consists of a series of tables summarizing the provisions of national legislation and of bilateral and multilateral agreements governing foreign fishing in waters under national jurisdiction.
FAOLEX is a comprehensive and up-to-date computerized legislative database, one of the world’s largest electronic collection of national laws and regulations on food, agriculture and renewable natural resources.
