is pleased to announce a new publication on transboundary water management entitled Transboundary Water Law and Policy – Exchanging Experiences across African River Basin Organizations
. The publication provides an overview of different legal and policy arrangements for transboundary water management and summarizes the results of a workshop organized by GIZ and hosted by the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) in 2015. At the workshop, high-level representatives of African RBOs and regional institutions discussed critical advances in the development and implementation of law and policy frameworks for transboundary water management and, in particular, the development of infrastructure on transboundary watercourses and the development and implementation of legal and policy frameworks that guide such infrastructure projects.
The publication can be found at https://www.giz.de/fachexpertise/downloads/giz2015-en-water-law-policy.pdf
