Transboundary Water Cooperation and the Sustainable Development Goals

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

The last several years have seen a discernible shift in global priorities towards advancing the concept of sustainable development. In particular the establishment of the post-2015 development agenda and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the UN General Assembly points towards an integrated plan towards tackling global challenges. The goals seek to protect and improve five key areas of the world including people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnership. The intent of this paper is to emphasize the vital role that transboundary water cooperation plays in global development, and to map out the relationship that this cooperation has with the other goals.
