Integrated Transboundary Groundwater Management
Tools and Methods
Organized by UNESCO-ISARM
The course analyzed several case studies, presented and commented by internationally known experts from the field; this analysis was then followed by a series of round‐table discussions. In the last session, a role‐play aimed at consolidating the methods and tools developed during the course.
The course reviewed transboundary groundwater issues in different contexts: the case of countries with non concurrent administrative and hydrological boundaries; the case of the European Union, and the case of countries free from political conflict. The case of countries experiencing political conflict were considered through a role‐play based on a fictitious case study.
The course was free of charge and was attended by 40 persons (a selection process took into consideration disciplinary, geographical and gender representations).
