April 6, 2009: IGRAC, the International Groundwater Resources Assessment Centre, presented the map 'Transboundary Aquifers of the World - update 2009' during a special meeting at World Water Forum 5 in Istanbul.
- The map is about Transboundary Aquifers (TBAs). It shows the present state of information regarding the occurrence and extent of TBAs world-wide.
- The intention of the map is to provide a global overview of these important shared water resources and to encourage their further assessment.
- The back of the map contains an introduction to a methodology for assessment of TBAs
IGRAC would like to know your opinion on the map and the proposed methodology for assessment.
