Promoting development in shared river basins: tools for enhancing transboundary basin management

Source(s):  World Bank, the (WB)

This publication aims to contribute to relevant knowledge for achieving Sustainable Development Goal Target 6.5, which recognizes that coordination among countries in the development of transboundary basins can yield greater benefits than would be available to individual countries pursuing individual development. It presents a toolkit comprising 101 tools derived from the international experience (with corresponding real-world examples) that can be employed by countries and development partners—distinguishing between tools available to each—in their efforts to develop more water secure economies and societies through harnessing the shared freshwater resources of transboundary basins, while also preventing or mitigating transboundary harm that may otherwise result. The publication also guides the reader through a three-stage process framework for choosing the most appropriate tools in the toolkit for a given transboundary waters situation.
