Adapting to Climate Change in Transboundary Water Management

As climate change is expected to increase the frequency and duration of flooding and drought, transboundary management of water resources is essential to reduce its impact.

The management of transboundary water bodies is more complex than national and subnational water management because it usually differs between countries. Apart from a number of shared river basins, there are a number of underground aquifers shared by different countries.

This paper suggests a harmonisation of policies is needed to prevent situations in which management actions in one country neutralise or counteract management action in others. In such situations, communication and exchange of policies and plans is imperative.
