Second Assessment of Transboundary Rivers, Lakes and Groundwaters

Second Assessment of Transboundary Rivers, Lakes and Groundwaters
  • United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). August 2011
  • This Second Assessment of Transboundary Rivers, Lakes and Groundwaters provides a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the status of transboundary waters in the European and Asian parts of the UNECE region. The Assessment presents an analysis of pressures, quantity and quality status, transboundary impacts, as well as responses and future trends of transboundary water resources in the region and highlights regional differences, specificities and vulnerabilities. Legal, institutional and socio-economic issues have a prominent place in this Second Assessment, given their crucial importance for transboundary water cooperation. The report aims to inform, guide and spur further action by national and local authorities, joint bodies and international and non-governmental organizations to improve the status of transboundary waters and related ecosystems. The Second Assessment covers more than 140 transboundary rivers, 25 transboundary lakes and about 200 transboundary groundwaters
