Project Information Document
The transboundary water systems of the world support the socioeconomic development and wellbeing of a significant part of the world’s population. These waters continue to be degraded by multiple and complex human-induced stresses, including global climate change, and sustainability of resources exploitation and environment management seems questionable for many of them. Among the constraints to the effective management of transboundary waters and to global political recognition of the plight of these economically critical waters is the lack of a systematic, periodic assessment of their changing conditions. The situations seem so complex that decision-makers do not properly understand or address the subject or the root causes of degradation and loss.
