Folder PfA 1.5.7 - Sharing and monitoring information at the transboundary level for sustainable water management

Priority for Action 1.5 Contribute to Cooperation and Peace through water

The session related to « Sharing and monitoring information at the transboundary level » under the priority for action 1.5 « Contribute to Cooperation and Peace through water » took place on Thursday 15/03 from 14h30 to 16h30 in Palais de l'Europe.

The success of cooperation policies in the water sector depends on the use of efficient governance tools where transparency and confidence in access to information on the status of water resources and their use is fundamental. The establishment of information systems to support sound management of water resources and transboundary cooperation is not easy, data are often widely distributed, of inconsistent quality and collected for a range of different purposes, at different spatial and time scales. This session demonstrated solutions already implemented and other still emerging to support the cooperation between riparian countries sharing the same water resources. It also discussed the commitment necessary to move towards an open data behaviour within the water community worldwide.
