Abstract: "Water energises all sectors of society. Nearly half of the global available surface water is found in 263 international river basins, and groundwater resources, which account for more than one hundred times the amount of surface water, cross under at least 273 international borders. National boundaries make water issues political and so much more complex. This report challenges those in the international water community to grapple with some of the latest conceptual thinking and most recent lessons learned from around the world. The four chapters in the volume present real-world experience of cooperation at the international and community levels and innovative approaches to overcome political obstacles to cooperation."
