Transboundary Water Resources Management  

Transboundary Water Resources Management provides a framework for managing water resources across national boundaries. Other critical institutional responses to address some present-day water challenges include commitment to International, Regional and Basin Level Agreements, effective National Water Laws and regulations governing access and use of water, and creation of a knowledge-base for basin managers to make informed decisions. Flexibility in International Agreements allows for adjustments in response to both gradual and sudden changes within a transboundary river basin. Benefit Sharing presents an alternative to the traditional transboundary water management paradigm. Examples of River Basin Organisations at various stages of development are presented for the Orange-Senqu, Nile, Danube, and Mekong rivers.
