Transboundary water resources are increasing in importance as sources of freshwater worldwide. Transboundary rivers affect more than 40% of the world?s population and in the Mediterranean region as much as 80% of water resources are shared between two or more countries. Transboundary groundwater aquifer resources constitute the most important source of freshwater in North Africa and the Middle East.

This book aims to serve as a practical guide for collaborative actions in transboundary water resources management (TWRM), and includes the latest developments in methodological tools, illustrated by practical case studies from around the world. On a national basis, water resources management is a complex issue mainly of water sharing and conflict resolution between different national administrations and various stakeholders. When waters cross international borders, this becomes even more challenging.

International guidelines and programmes are analysed, such as the UNESCO Internationally Shared Aquifer Resources Management (UNESCO-ISARM) initiative, the UNESCO Potential Conflict to Cooperation Potential (PCCP) programme, and the EU Water Framework Directive (EU-WFD) 2000/60. Practical tools, state-of-the-art methodologies and models for TWRM from different parts of the world are also provided, showing how to deal with data sharing, water scarcity, climate change, water related conflicts, enhance stakeholder participation and incorporate socio-economic issues. This will be very useful not only to engineers, hydrologists, and hydrogeologists but also to lawyers, social and political scientists and decision-makers interested in TWRM.
