At this year's World Water Forum 6, held in Marseille, we presented a new update of the Transboundary Aquifers of the World Map highlighting the work and efforts of the past three years in identifying and delineating the world's transboundary groundwater resources.
Key departures from the TBA Map 2009:
Full detail on the methodology creating this map as well as definitions and additional information such as on the legend are given on the back side of the map. Further the back includes the ‘Draft Articles on the Law of Transboundary Aquifers', to which IGRAC as member of the ISARM core group contributed and a commentary by water law expert and senior UNESCO-IHP consultant Raya Marina Stephan.
We are always keen to hear your opinion about our newly updated map. As the knowledge on transboundary aquifers is still limited and mapping our shared groundwater resources a continuous process please let us know about newly identified and/or delineated aquifers/GWBs in your region so that we can include them in the future. Please provide comments and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
