Enhancing transboundary water cooperation through multistakeholder regional dialogues

Regional multistakeholder dialogues (MSDs) are an effective way to advance transboundary water cooperation. This experience note aims to capture experiences and key lessons from regional dialogues that have been supported through GEF IW:LEARN. It highlights how successful regional MSD in Southeast Europe was replicated in Central America, fostering cooperation and partnerships. Key enabling factors to foster such regional MSDs are introduced, and key resource materials are highlighted to replicate the effort by relevant actors within the GEF International Waters community. Experiences were also shared through an online session organized in the context of a massive open online course (MOOC) on Governance for Transboundary Freshwater Security, organized jointly with Global Water Partnership (GWP) and IW:LEARN in 2023.
