New GIZ Publication on Transboundary Water Management

GIZ 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. Read More...
