This presentation assembles several streams of research emerging as a follow-up to The Culture of Flushing: A Social and Legal History of Sewage (UBC Press, 2007). Sewage is a public health and human rights issue deeply embedded in the current challenge around Millennium Development Goals; it is an international trade issue between some jurisdictions, and it is a climate change issue associated with GHG emissions and green energy alternatives. What are the transboundary legal and policy implications of sewage regulation?
