Water, climate and finance know no borders. This brings challenges and opportunities: The majority of freshwater worldwide flows in transboundary basins and most climate change impacts are felt through the water cycle.

This paper proposes that transboundary water governance needs to become an essential input to  sustainable  governance  of  protected  natural  reserves.  The  paper  reviews  the  challenges  and  opportunities for such governance mechanisms, and identifies the factors behind successful practices.  Successful transboundary governance of water a

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) recently launched a report and preliminary study on benefit sharing opportunities in the Meghna Basin for Bangladesh and India.
