Expert Workshop: "Beyond water: Regional economic integration and geopolitical benefits of transboundary water cooperation"

28 - 29 January 2015

Tallinn, Estonia

Transboundary water cooperation, through improved water management, generates a range of economic, social and environmental benefits. Transboundary water cooperation may also have spill-over benefits in terms of regional economic integration, peace and security and other foreign policy goals.

The Expert Workshop “Beyond water” gathered 35 participants from regional economic integration and foreign policy communities, as well as water practitioners and representatives from international organizations and NGOs.

The experts produced recommendations on how to identify, assess and communicate the regional integration and geopolitical benefits of transboundary water cooperation, to contribute to the further development of a Policy Guidance Note on Identifying, Assessing and Communicating the Benefits of Transboundary Water Cooperation.

News release:
UNECE facilitates reflection on the regional integration, peace, security and stability benefits of transboundary water cooperation
