Transboundary interactions with water systems

Improve understanding of international transboundary interactions among the water, energy and food production systems including the impacts of hydropower dams and irrigation schemes. Based on this understanding, identify practical ways to negotiate acceptable trade-offs as well as take advantages of synergies which may exist across systems and national boundaries and associated policy domains, that are gender-inclusive and help reduce the water-related insecurities of the poor, vulnerable or other marginalized social groups. Transboundary engagements will include national and regional women/gender organizations in order to raise awareness and respond to gender and social inequality issues related to water, energy and food production systems in hydropower and irrigation development contexts.
