HOORC governance research at Swedish meeting

HOORC governance researcher Lapo Magole will be participating in the Advanced International Training Programme, Integrated Transboundary Water Resource Management, this coming week in Stockholm, Sweden, presenting a situation analysis of the Okavango River basin.

On a related topic, the Global International Waters Assessment final report was launched at the Ninth Special Session of the UNEP Governing Council/Global Ministerial Environment Forum (GMEF) in Dubai in February 2006. Challenges to International Waters; Regional Assessments in a Global Perspective, produced by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), summarises major transboundary concerns and their environmental and socio-economic impacts.

The Global International Waters Assessment (GIWA) is a holistic assessment of the world's transboundary waters that is looking at links between the freshwater and the coastal marine environment and integrating environmental and socio-economic information to determine the impacts of a broad range of influences on the world's aquatic environment.
