Case studies

During its first phase of activities, PCCP has asked experts directly or indirectly involved in the management of selected river basins to author a series of case studies. The case studies draw lessons from both the root causes of conflicts as well as from examples of successful co-operation in transboundary water resources management. They provide an important summary of data related to the hydrology of the river basins in addition to substantial information on the historical management of the water resources. The legal, political and economical aspects, which make every case unique, were also analyzed and assessed.
Since the second phase of the programme, the case study development follows an innovative approach. The ministries concerned with the management of the selected water body of all riparian countries nominate experts who are asked to co-author the study on their respective behalf. Representatives from the government,.the civil society from all countries as well as other stakeholders are invited to contribute to the exercise. The dialogue opportunities offered by the joint writing process, as well as the review and the validation of the study, support the cooperation process and underline the importance to jointly manage the transboundary water resources in question.
