This book brings together in a concise and accessible way all of the main topics to be considered when managing transboundary waters.
'It is essential that the international community support (these) efforts by strengthening all facets of institutional capacity for effective water management. This volume represents a tangible contribution to this effort by placing the current knowledge and experience of water management professionals and researchers within reach of a broad audience.' From the Foreword by Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO 'This remarkable book provides an essential overview of the topic for researchers and water resource managers. At the same time, as water rises higher on the political agenda in many regions of the world, and more and more peoplei? s lives are affected in various ways -either by too much or too little water - this book will provide vital insights for politicians and government negotiators concerned with issues of water security.' Ania Grobicki, Executive Secretary, Global Water Partnership, Sweden 'It is stimulating to find a book that considers transboundary waters as a challenge that can be dealt with to the benefit of the different riparians through negotiations, cooperation and institutional capacity, rather than stressing the irrelevant argument of water wars.' Cecilia Tortajada, Vice President, Third World Centre for Water Management, Mexico 'This book is the first to bring together in a concise and accessible way all of the main topics to be considered when managing transboundary waters' BASE 'It is a book of hope that considers transboundary waters a challenge that can be dealt with.' d-sector.org
