A GAME BASED SIMULATION OF NEGOTIATION OVER TRANSBOUNDARY RIVER-AQUIFER
This webinar will be a simulation of negotiations between two ‘countries’ over their transboundary river-aquifer system.
The simulations will be carried out by highly qualified lawyers and hydrologists, drawing on their knowledge on transboundary water resources and international water law.

The Issue: The upstream country (Hilli’stan) wishes to draw on the resources in the aquifers for urgent public supply needs. The downstream country (Valli’stan) is using a large amount of water for irrigation (which could be impacted by the new wellfields) and wants to expand irrigation – but needs the upstream neighbour to undertake either a dam construction or modify its groundwater use.
