This article explores the procedural environmental rights practice of regional human rights and environmental protection systems through a comparative lens (ECHR, IACHR, ACHPR, Aarhus Convention, London protocol on Water and Health) in order to identify the ways in which existing developments and current trends can inform and enrich the procedural dimension of the right to water. The study suggests that enhanced levels of transparency, public engagement and justiciability in water related decisions are significant steps towards the achievement of the substantive dimension of the right to water and highlights the potential for cross-fertilization between such regimes towards good water governance.
