Who owns water when it stops flowing? Who owns land when it’s underwater?

Drought and flooding are twinned threats in the global climate crisis, as rivers dry up or are dammed and sea-levels inexorably rise. How do the communities that rely on these waterways respond? How must our understanding of water rights shift in a climate-changed world?

Not a Drop to Drink: Aqua nullius and global warming, securing First Nations water rights is a session of the North Melbourne School of Displacement, part of Refuge 2019
