What is Water Cooperation?
Water Cooperation recognises the need for a trans-boundary and multi-disciplinary approach to water management. This holistic approach aims to incorporate all the aspects of how we use and manage water from cultural, educational, scientific, religious, ethical, social, political, legal, institutional and economic. It promotes cooperation between different countries and disciplines to work together under a shared goal of water conservation and an equal access to clean water for all.
