Dear colleagues and friends of the Transboundary Aquifers Commission,

We have the pleasure to invite you to the upcoming IAH Congress in Davos, Switzerland, 8-13 September 2024. We have organized the session: On effective transboundary groundwater areas for shared aquifer management

Protection, Management And Governance Of Groundwater Resources In Transboundary Aquifers – Stampriet Transboundary Aquifer System (STAS) Case Study

The UNESCO-IHP initiated a project on “Governance of Groundwater Resources in Transboundary Aquifers” in 2013. Three aquifers were selected for case studies: Trifinio (Central America), Pretashkent (Central Asia), and the Stampriet Transboundary Aquifer System (STAS) in southern Africa shared between Botswana, Namibia and South Africa. The project aimed to conduct a detailed assessment of the characteristics, current state and management of transboundary aquifers and to lay the foundations for a multi-country consultation body.
