There are 276 transboundary rivers and lakes and more than 300 aquifers shared by riparian countries around the world. Transboundary basins cover 45 per cent of the world’s lands, linking two or more countries through water resources located above and below the Earth’s surface. Many of the world’s populations and ecosystems therefore depend on water resources crossing national borders. Emerging crises related to population growth, climate change, urbanization, increasing demand for energy and food or regional instability affect water resources management. The International Network of Basin Organizations (INBO) appreciates how this situation becomes more complex with transboundary waters.
