INWEB's Coordinator, Em. Prof. Jacques Ganoulis, participated to the UNECE Workshop on “Counting our gains: Sharing experiences on identifying, assessing and communicating the benefits of transboundary water cooperation” that was held in Geneva, Switzerland, the 22 and 23 May 2014.
 
The workshop, organized in the framework of the Water Convention, gathered about 100 participants and provided a platform to:
  • Discuss between stakeholders with different backgrounds (water practitioners, politicians, parliamentarians, journalists, researchers...) the benefits of transboundary water cooperation and how benefits assessment can support the transboundary water cooperation processes;
  • Share experiences, good practices, challenges faced and lessons learned on the identification, assessment and communication of the wide range of benefits that can be generated by transboundary water cooperation;
  • Support the further development of the draft Policy Guidance Note on identifying, assessing and communicating the benefits of transboundary water cooperation.
The Workshop was organized under the leadership of the Government of Estonia, funded by Estonia, Switzerland and Luxembourg, with the support of the UNECE secretariat in partnership with UNESCO.
