Workshop on Transboundary Water Allocation, WEFE Nexus and Development of Agreements and other Arrangements

April 15 - April 16

Supporting exchanges of lessons learned, good practices and practical tools

The overall objective of the workshop is to increase capacity, support exchange of information and good practices, and promote the Handbook on transboundary water allocation under the framework of the Water Convention. It will do so by increasing understanding and knowledge:

  • firstly, about mechanisms, tools and good practices for water allocation in transboundary basins and aquifers;
  • secondly, the value of broader approaches to be considered in connection with transboundary water allocation, particularly the science-policy interface regarding the WEFE nexus approach and development / revisions of allocation agreements and other arrangements;
    and thirdly, on the broader-reaching benefits of effective and climate-resilient agreements and other arrangements for transboundary water cooperation in supporting sustainable development, regional integration and peace.

A key objective as regards the Development of Agreements and Other Arrangements and utilising the Practical Guide is to support states, basin organizations and other organizations in sharing challenges, problem-solving and exchanging good practices on allocation agreements and other arrangements on transboundary rivers, lakes and aquifers. Specific attention will be paid to the science-policy interface between allocation modelling, WEFE Nexus approach and developing flexible, ‘climate-proof’ legal agreements and policies.

The workshop will be organized under the leadership of the Governments of Finland and Hungary, with the support of the Water Convention secretariat and Zambia as the host country.

Jingshui Huang, the project coordinator for WE-ACT, will present our project and provide insights during Session 2, which focuses on the current state and future challenges of transboundary water allocation within relevant contexts.
