Présentation
In arid zones groundwater is a source of life and as such it is difficult to find a balance between preservation and use. This is made more difficult when the necessary data required to study these systems is inaccessible, and even more complicated when such systems are transboundary and therefore shared between two or more countries. Considering the complexity of the issue, and its political sensitivity, the UNESCO International Hydrological Programme (IHP) and the World Bank decided to call upon international experts to support the preparation of a text that could provide valuable indications on the sustainable use and management of these water resources.
This publication intends to provide a contribution not only towards the development of an improved knowledge base in the field of hydrogeology, but also to the sustainable management of groundwater resources in different regions of the world. In particular it aims to provide decision-makers with the relevant scientific information
