Workshop - Assessing the benefits of transboundary water cooperation in the Cubango-Okavango River Basin

9 - 10 May 2017

Windhoek, Namibia

The workshop gathered around 30 representatives from the three countries of the Cubango-Okavango River Basin – CORB (Angola, Botswana and Namibia). It made it possible to:
•    Present the context of the draft “CORB Benefit Assessment Report”, including the Helsinki Water Convention;
•    Refine the findings and initial recommendations of the “CORB Benefit Assessment Report”;
•    Explore next steps to communicate the messages of the basin report; and
•    Explore next steps to realize the potential benefits of stronger cooperation in the basin.

The draft “CORB Benefit Assessment Report” is the outcome of a study to identify, assess, document and communicate the benefits of transboundary water cooperation in the CORB, which builds on the Policy Guidance Note on the benefits of transboundary water cooperation: identification, assessment and communication developed under the Helsinki Water Convention.
The  study was led and funded by the World Bank and the UK-funded Climate Resilient Infrastructure Development Facility, with technical and advisory support from UNECE.
