Book
The book is written by two distinguished scientists, who, having worked in various international institutions, like UNESCO, GEF, UNEP and at the European Commission, have both an extended expertise on how to bridge the gap between science and political decision-making, which is the main factor for an effective governance of water resources. What is...
Chapter
In this chapter, different types of conflicts and cooperation activities are analysed as related to water quantity, water quality, water ecosystems and socio-economic issues. Conflicts and cooperation can be developed between countries but also between regions, water districts and municipalities located in the same country. International and nation...
Chapter
The purpose of this chapter is to examine and understand what is a governance of water, or hydro-governance, enabling to deal with all kind of waters, i.e. surface, groundwater and coastal water. Having proposed clear distinctions between the concepts of Management, Policy and Governance, often somewhat confusing, and analyzed some basic tools used...
Chapter
Transboundary waters are rivers, lakes and aquifers divided by political borders. Although the physical characteristics of internationally shared hydrological catchments and aquifers are independent from the socio-economic conditions of each riparian country, their scientific description and management may differ significantly from one country to a...
Chapter
Having introduced the why, what, how of Transboundary Hydro-Governance, this chapter proposes a detailed organized framework of “good” hydro-governance, i.e. a practical model based on seven drivers. It examines how they could be built, how they could be coordinated and how they could operate, from Science and Technique to Policy and Law to Socio-E...
Chapter
To illustrate what is hydro-governance in practice and its diversity, but to try to identify features that could serve as a basis for common hydro-governance guidelines for both surface waters and groundwater, either separately or jointly managed, we propose several examples of transboundary hydro-governance for both river basins systems and ground...
Chapter
Water is a key factor for the socio-economic development of human societies as it is the main element for human and ecosystems survival, and it plays a major role in different economic activities, such as agricultural irrigation, energy, industrial production and environmental preservation. Various natural and man-made factors, such as regional and...
Chapter
In this chapter, the international dimension is added to hydro-governance in order to define and analyse the so-called “Transboundary Hydro-governance”. Waters shared by two or more different countries have to be managed equitably through cooperation between riparian countries: no matter if they form an international border or if they are crossing...
Chapter
The practical implementation of hydro-governance for transboundary waters, or shared hydro-governance, needs a set of instruments and tools, belonging to, on the one hand, classical domains such as science, economy, society, legislation both national and international, policy, and, on the other hand, less classical such as diplomacy for conflict re...

Based on an international symposium addressing a key issue in global development, this reference includes both the latest methodologies for and practical examples of effective management of transboundary water resources. Its multidisciplinary approach combines hydrology and environmental science with economic and political approaches, in line with...
Article
The paradigm of sustainable development as a strategy of dialogue and communication is of growing interest in the context of international cooperation, in a world of economic, environmental, and societal and demographic interdependence. After a brief discussion of the complexity of the concept of sustainable development, contributing to the difficu...

Water plays a major role in the construction and development of society; a vital resource, water is considered to be a gift from God in many religions, and access to water is widely considered a human right. But water is ambivalent: it provides public health, safety, and life, while also causing mortal danger through illnesses it propagates and flo...
Chapter
The management of groundwater is complex, and when complicated by political boundaries, it can become a source of conflicts. Education and training are major instruments in teaching people to jointly manage their common water resources, according to sustainable development principles, especially emphasizing partnerships and the knowledge of each ot...
Article
An important aspect of the pollution of a phreatic aquifer by hydrocarbons is the oil-water contact and transfer of soluble substances from the oil into the ground water.A systematic study of this transfer of matter in a saturated porous medium (initial condition of contact when the impregnation body is submitted to fluctuations of the piezometric...
Article
Full-text available
The mathematical modelling of chemical fate in surface waters should allow prediction of time evolution problems and provide management techniques. A large varitety of models exists, built around relatively few basic concepts. The author discusses two families of model - the local and global models, and critically assesses the drawbacks and difficu...
Chapter
Nitrate levels in the European Economic Community (EEC) aquatic environment (i.e., surface, ground and coastal waters) are steadily increasing, with two major consequences: (1) an increased risk of degradation of drinking water; and (2) eutrophication of continental and coastal aquifers, which can harm fishing and tourism. EEC Member States have in...
Chapter
Coordinated by members of the European Institute for Water, the International Ground Water Modeling Center (Europe), and the Commission of the European Communities, the Seminar on ‘Modelling for Water Management’ gathered participants from the various member states of the European Community and from Israel.
Article
The Commission of European Communities has completed the evaluation of the ground-water resources of the Community. Directed by the author, the study is the first multinational water resources evaluation, performed by nine consultants representing the nine Member States. Comprising 152 maps at the scale of 1/500,000 and ten reports, it appears to b...
