The Water Convention contributes to the welfare of societies in transboundary basins and beyond

Implementation of the Water Convention and the application of its principles contribute to the welfare of societies in transboundary basins and beyond. An effective cooperation in shared basins often yields great benefits, such as better health from improved water quality, greater food security thanks to more stable access to irrigation, and a reduced risk of waterrelated disasters. Employment and reduced poverty, improved access to services, such as electricity and water supply, greater satisfaction thanks to the preservation of cultural resources or access to recreational opportunities, are additional positive features. The Convention contributes to improving contacts between populations across borders, thereby facilitating joint solutions of common problems.
