Water & Wastewater Law

Between 2011 – 2013, Kamal & Associates advised the Palestinian Water Authority on the policy formulation and drafting of the Palestinian Water Law #14 of 2014. Our team has worked tirelessly on defining and delineating the lines between the roles of the different institutions, including the Water Authority, the Water Regulatory Council, the National Water Company and the utility companies. Our work with the Palestinian Water Authority on this task involved looking into comparative laws, ensuring that the new law will meet the policy objectives it is intended to, and is in fit with the Palestinian legal and regulatory framework, and engaging in negotiations and consultations with different stakeholders, including authority officials, international experts, and senior Palestinian Authority officials, including the then Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.
