UN WATER – 2022
Groundwater accounts for 99% of all liquid freshwater on Earth. However, this natural resource is often poorly understood and consequently undervalued, mismanaged and even abused. According to the latest edition of the United Nations World Water Development Report published by UNESCO, the vast potential of groundwater, and the need to manage it sustainably, can no longer be overlooked.

CIWA – 2022
The Horn of Africa is a region exposed to the risks of water insecurity due to population growth and the impact of climate change. Growing water stress complicates many of the region’s social, political and economic difficulties, including weak governance and societal tensions between ethnic, regional or religious groups.

ECDPM – 2021
Effective and collaborative management of water resources across borders can enable peace, food security and resilience. As water scarcity and water stress are growing worldwide, most river basin organisations seem to acknowledge the need for transboundary water cooperation. Yet the agreements reached therein suffer from persistent under-implementation.

How can governments, other public and private actors learn about and better understand the water-energy-food-ecosystems nexus? How can they use a ‘nexus approach’ to address the most pressing issues in transboundary water basins? Last but not least, how can they design and implement ‘nexus’ solutions and investments that create synergies and provide transboundary benefits?

CSDS – 2021
In transboundary river basins, water data and information sharing are the foundation of trust building, evidence-based cooperation and water diplomacy between riparian states, and also with non-state actors including riparian communities and civil society. This research report examines what options exist for improved evidence-based transboundary water governance in the Mekong-Lancang basin building from recent improvements in basin-wide water data sharing.

The Hamouns are transboundary wetlands on the Iran-Afghan border made up of three lakes: Hamoun-e Helmand, which is entirely in Iran, Hamoun-e Sabari on the border, and Hamoun-e Puzak, almost entirely inside Afghanistan. The three lakes are linked and fed by water from the Helmand River which starts in the Hindu Kush Mountains in Afghanistan.

Francesco Sindico, Reader, International Environmental Law and Director, Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law and Governance, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK-2021
Groundwater amounts to 97% of available global freshwater resources. Emphasising the crucial importance of this in the context of increasing population, climate change and the overall global water crisis, Francesco Sindico offers a comprehensive study of the emerging body of international law applicable to transboundary aquifers.
A number of river basin organizations (RBO) have been established for transboundary water resources management. Read in this report “Shared Basin – Shared Destiny” which characteristics are required for effective RBOs
