Water-Food-Energy-Ecosystems Nexus Approach - Opportunities for cooperation in transboundary basins (storymap)

Every transboundary river basin or aquifer presents specific management-related challenges. Flooding and sedimentation, water scarcity and pollution, unsustainable land use and agricultural practices, impacts from infrastructure, inefficient use of resources, and degradation of ecosystems and their services are just some of the issues that cross borders and sectors [1].

Responding to these various pressures is beyond the means of water management alone.
