Workshop on transboundary water cooperation: Latin American and Pan-European regions: sharing experiences and learning from each other

11 - 12 June 2013

Buenos Aires, Argentina

The Workshop on Transboundary Water Cooperation “Latin American and Pan-European Regions: Sharing Experiences and Learning from Each Other” took place from 11 to 12 June 2013 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The Workshop was jointly organized by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the Global Environment Facility (GEF) International Waters Learning Exchange and Resource Network (IW:LEARN), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the University of Bologna Center in Buenos Aires.

The Workshop offered a forum for debating the current state of water cooperation, the progress achieved and the prevailing challenges, as well as for sharing lessons learned and good practices for cooperation on transboundary waters in the Latin American and Caribbean region and the UNECE region. It built on the successful examples of transboundary cooperation in the Latin American and Caribbean region. It also served as a platform for country representatives to discuss such topics as the legal and institutional aspects of transboundary water cooperation; reconciling different interests and uses in transboundary basins; and adaptation to climate variability and change.

Press release of the workshop is available in English. La nota de prensa está disponible en español.
