Strengthening the Basis for Water Cooperation across Borders

The seminar’s theme is water cooperation and the multi-level governance of internationally shared freshwaters. The seminar aims to: • inform preparations for the imminent entry into force of the UN Watercourses Convention, through discussions on potential institutional arrangements for supporting its effective implementation • present the framework and experience of the UNECE Water Convention, in view of the forthcoming global opening of the Convention for accession by countries outside the UNECE region • promote debates on the ILC Draft Articles on Transboundary Aquifers ahead of a decision on their final format • and review successful examples of water cooperation and governance in a transboundary context, including relevant tools and institutions, from the global to the local levels. The seminar will lead to improved awareness and knowledge of the instruments, institutions, tools and guidelines that facilitate cooperation.
