International Waters learning Exchange & Resource Network

Participation and call for examples and experiences

22 Nov 2016

The priority target audience includes country officials (ministries and agencies), practitioners, river basin organizations, project managers (in particular of GEF IW projects), international organizations, research institutes and academia as well as NGOs working in resource management or policy whose work could be improved and enriched by improved awareness about intersectoral links and impacts.  
Expected participation to the workshop from different regions of the world will make it possible to exchange broadly experience in tackling intersectoral challenges in management of water and linked resources, also in relation to protecting the environment. Such exchange is meant to support Governments, basin organizations and regional organizations in practical application of a nexus approach in their particular contexts. 
There are two kinds of solicited contributions to the workshop: 1) examples of nexus solutions possibly implemented or only identified in transboundary basins 2) expressions of interest to be the focus on the group discussions on how a nexus approach could be put into practice in specific transboundary basins. 
Any such proposal should not be longer than 300 words and should be sent by e-mail to by 14 October 2016. Please consider that given the time limitation and the fact that the workshop will give preference to discussions rather than prepared presentations, not all proposals will be finally included in the workshop programme.
