There are 286 transboundary river and lake basins and 592 transboundary aquifer systems in the world. Furthermore, 153 countries share transboundary water systems; out of those, 148 share at least one aquifer with one or more neighboring state.Transboundary waters account for 60% of the world’s freshwater flows and over 40% of the world’s population relies on them for their secure and stable livelihoods.
