The International Waters Initiative is examining both fresh water and marine experiences. The beneficial practices found in the legal and institutional frameworks that govern such waters are identified, collected, analyzed, adapted and replicated. The objectives are to strengthen and promote multi-country cooperation, and to enhance the transboundary regime development in an eco-systemically sustainable manner. The Initiative is developing a South South network of professionals and practitioners working on all aspects of transboundary waters.
The Initiative has three principal components:
To identify and analyze legal and institutional beneficial practices in International Waters;
To develop and validate new experiential learning tools and teaching guides;
To develop local expertise in training and tool delivery.
