In an era of increasing competition and climate shocks, cooperation over water resources requires renewed efforts. While failure to cooperate can hinder development and lead to costly conflict, progress has been made in understanding the conditions that foster collective action.
The purpose of this workshop is to bridge the gap between the science and art of water cooperation. Importantly, the workshop will highlight promising examples of collective action, and demontrate how knowledge can best be translated into effective training, education and institutional development. In addition, graduates of course programmes will contribute "Novel ideas to sparking water cooperation".
