Managing waters shared across national boundaries: Treasury of papers helps capture 20 years of lessons

1 countries) and propose enactment of a comprehensive international program of cooperation. Otherwise, the 300 million people who depend on the Nile will be confronted with even more profound challenges now and in the future.

Managing shared aquifers

Author Kettelhut outlines the lessons learned from the Guarani Aquifer, including the need to prioritize efforts especially in areas located at or near boundaries of countries. Priorities can be profound challenges because of information and knowledge gaps. The best way forward is for participating countries to address and implement actions as collaborators -- an objective much easier stated than accomplished.

"Dynamic management" of large marine ecosystems

Authors Vousden and Stapley explore the innovative Science-Based Governance approach increasingly employed in the Agulhas and Somali Current large marine ecosystem. A "Dynamic Management Strategy" incorporating "weight-of-evidence" decision-making is part of the approach designed to fast track processes, improve early warnings and make adaptive management feasible.

Research carried out outside of the GEF IW portfolio is also presented in the volume as a way to highlight ongoing and new research that can be used by those engaged in transboundary waters research and management all around the world.

Highlights among those articles:

Northward creep of "world's worst water weed" foreseen

UNEP-based authors point up a new climate change-related dread: higher temperatures are expected to extend the expensive reach of the tropical, fast-growing water hyacinth -- dubbed "the world's worst water weed" -- to water bodies at higher latitudes, posing new threats to aquatic biodiversity, national economies and human health.

Scientists call for intensified monitoring, mitigation and management measures to keep the weed in check.
