With some 263 rivers around the world that cross the boundaries of two or more nations, and an untold number of international groundwater aquifers, transboundary water management is increasingly seen as necessary to avoid conflict, reduce environmental degradation and achieve economic growth.

In this session, several experts and key players in river basins will share their experiences in African and formulate a set of recommendations to identify incentives to get countries and stakeholders together around the dialogue table, to assess the pros and cons of those incentives and to communicate and negotiate with each other about win-win solutions.
