Second Assessment of Transboundary Rivers, Lakes and Groundwaters

image of Second Assessment of Transboundary Rivers, Lakes and Groundwaters
The key goal of the second Assessment of Transboundary Rivers, Lakes and Groundwaters is to keep the state of shared water resources in Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia under scrutiny. It aims to facilitate informed decision-making on their management, provide the basis for continuous bilateral and multilateral cooperation under the Water Convention, and support all actors involved at the national, transboundary and regional levels. More than 150 transboundary rivers, 40 lakes and some 200 transboundary groundwater occurrences have been assessed in close cooperation with the national environment and water administrations in the European and Asian parts of the UNECE region, and high attention is being devoted to the countries with economies in transition which are facing the biggest challenges.

Caucasus

The subregional assessment of transboundary waters in the Caucasus covers transboundary rivers, lakes and groundwaters shared by two or more of the following countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Russian Federation and Turkey. The assessment of the individual transboundary surface and groundwaters in this subregion can be found in the Chapters 4 and 5 of Section IV (drainage basins of the Caspian Sea and of the Black Sea). The assessment of transboundary waters in the Caucasus also contains assessments of a number of selected Ramsar Sites and other wetlands of transboundary importance: Javakheti Wetlands area (including Lake Arpi Ramsar Site; Madatapa, Bugdasheni, Sagamo and Khanchali lakes and Kartsakhi/Aktas lake); and flood-plain marshes and fish ponds in the Araks/Aras River valley.
