Achieving water security in developing countries through transboundary waters management

Abstract : Water is a fundamental need for life and a prerequisite for development and the realization of a long list of human rights. The challenge of achieving water security through cooperation and peaceful development of transboundary water resources is all the more important since transboundary river basins cover about 45% of the Earth's land surface. However, developing countries still face difficulties regarding cooperation on transboundary waters. Underlining the major role played by the institutionalization of cooperation, we will argue that developing countries' poor performance regarding cooperation on transboundary waters are caused by multilevel asymmetries and institutional weaknesses. We will finally introduce possible solutions for overcoming obstacles to water security. We will insist on best practices in transboundary waters management and cooperation building.
