THE WORKSHOP

The Workshop on the legal basis for transboundary cooperation was held in Kiev on 22-24 November 2004. It brought together more than 40 decisions makers, water managers, scientists and representatives of international organizations and NGOs from the EECCA region and its bordering countries (see list of participants).

The Workshop was organized by the UNECE secretariat in cooperation with the Ukrainian Ministry for Environmental Protection and the State Water Management Committee of Ukraine, the UNDP/GEF Dnipro Basin Environment Programme, and the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The Swedish EPA also funded the Workshop.

The workshop focused on legal aspects of importance in transboundary water cooperation and management. International conventions, river basin agreements, statutes for river basin commissions, the results of international programmes on transboundary water cooperation and management were discussed. The workshop participants reported on the application of the Water Convention principles in their national framework and in the bilateral and multilateral agreements entered into by their countries (see agenda).

Participants examined the needs and opportunities in the further development of the legal framework for transboundary water cooperation in the EECCA region with regard to i) the ratification of the Water Convention and its Protocols; ii) the development and review of sub-regional bilateral and multilateral agreements and their implementation; iii) specific issues such as floods, transboundary groundwaters, etc.

The workshop outcome and recommendations will be presented in a paper to be published in 2005.
