This report focuses on national and regional capacities for the management of shared water resources in ESCWA member countries. Specific attention is paid to the legal frameworks for shared water resources management and the ways in which legal instruments and agreements can support integrated water resources management in shared river basins and shared aquifers. Analysis is also provided on the state of shared water resources management in the region, including current drivers, pressures, constraints and challenges facing shared water resources in the ESCWA region related to water security, water scarcity, climate change, as well as water and energy linkages.
