8-10 June 2021
Building on a first training series1 hosted by the JUST Water Diplomacy Center in 2020 and early 2021, the goal of this second training series is to build the participants´ knowledge and understanding to promote cooperation and the implementation of IWRM at the transboundary level. The objective is to help participants:
Upon successful completion of this course, and as a result of the activities and study in this course, trainees should be able to accomplish the following:
- Assess current water allocations in an example basin, along with understanding the “methods” being used for those allocations.
- Compare the allocation arrangement to what international water law might offer.
- Outline possible approaches steps required to move from the first method (and current allocation) to the second method (ideally “equitable and sustainable”) and the allocation and ecosystem arrangements that it might provide.
- Consider how development of knowledge can inform analysis to help parties reduce the increasing pressure on scarce shared water resources.
