News National Capacities for the Management of Shared Water Resources

This report provides a holistic view on shared water resources in the ESCWA region that takes into account the current challenges facing countries of the region and reflects them into the recent regional institutional and legal development in order to identify the gaps and clarify the prospects for sustained cooperation on shared water between countries of the region.

This report does not intend to measure the institutional capacity of individual countries in terms of managing shared water resources, which has beenthe subject of other publications in recent years. While in principle the report focuses primarily on ESCWA member countries, given that the ESCWA region is encompassed within the larger Arab region and considering the new institutional and legal developments that have or are taking place within the broader regional context, the scope of some elements of the report, especially those connected to chapters I, III and V, have been expanded to cover the entire Arab region.
