Water resources are limited and essential for economic growth and environmental and social well being of a nation. Transbounary water resources in south and central Asia are one of the key source of conflict and cooperation between the countries. One such case is shared water resources between Afghanistan and Iran, which has been the focus point of the two countries relationship. In this webinar we will go through the recent experience of transboundary water negotiations between these two countries.
- Hydro-diplomacy in a later-developing country such as Afghanistan, where water resources are one of the issues beside the security, political stability and economy.
- Experience sharing from the actual transboundary water negotiations meetings between two countries.
- Learning about the risks and concerns of a developing country before joining the negotiation table.
