It extends from basic building blocks and concepts to advanced thinking about transboundary governance, and applies theory to practice through examples and case studies. Topics covered in six modules range from the fundamentals of transboundary water security to international water law, water diplomacy, negotiations, institutions, management tools, and sustainable finance. This MOOC was produced and financed by the Global Water Partnership and GEF IW:LEARN. Over 80 water professionals from around the world brought their experiences to lectures and case studies.
