International Waters learning Exchange & Resource Network

The GEF International Waters project portfolio

Use the mapping tool to learn about specific projects, regions or waterbodies. Discover basins where the GEF has made project investments, or see all the transboundary aquifers, large marine ecosystems, lakes and river basins with or without GEF IW projects. Clicking on a specific ecosystem will inform you about key results from the basin as well as provide you a link to further details about activities, projects, documents and further content associated with the basin.

GeoNode is a hosting platform for spatial data. It enhances access to information on project activities and spatial data from the GEF International Waters portfolio.

The boundaries, colors, denominations and any other information shown on these maps do not imply, on the part of IW:LEARN, its implementing agencies and partners, any judgment on the legal status of any territory, or any endorsement or acceptance of such boundaries.
