Addressing water issues effectively requires transboundary action because the connectedness of these systems goes beyond political boundaries. Globally, there are over transboundary river basins and transboundary aquifers. 39 countries have more than 90% of their territory within one or more transboundary river basins and 21 lie entirely within one or more of these watersheds. IGRAC contribution to GEF IW conference, Cape Town, South Africa from July 31 - August 3, The Global Environment Facility (GEF) and its Implementing Agencies (UNDP, UNEP, and the World Bank) hosted the Fourth Biennial International Waters (IW) Conference for approximately participants from more than countries.
The Ninth Global Environment Facility (GEF) Biennial International Waters Conference (IWC9) will convene about participants, comprising GEF International Waters (IW) project managers, representatives of beneficiary countries, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), transboundary management institutions, UN agencies and the private sector, for interactive training and experience . The ten international waters proposals approved address three focal area objectives, namely: (1) catalyzing multi-state co-operation to balance conflicting water uses in transboundary surface and groundwater basins while considering climatic variability and change; (2) catalyzing multi-state co-operation to rebuild marine fisheries and reduce.
The GEF-IWCAM Project is one of several International Waters (IW) Projects worldwide which aims to influence human behaviour in order to protect shared natural resources by: • Raising public awareness of specific environmental problems;.

The GEF Small Grants Programme. The GEF International Waters (IW) focal area addresses sustainable development challenges faced by countries sharing transboundary surface, groundwater, and marine systems.
70 percent of the World is covered by Ocean, and 60 percent of the land lies in transboundary surface and groundwater basins. GEF International Waters Portfolio GEF is largest investor in multi-country collective management of transboundary water systems: $ billion GEF/$ billion co-financing totaling to date more than projects since GEF recipient states are cooperating with 23 non-recipient states on their particular shared water systems.

International Waters Focal Area Objectives for GEF-5 () Objective 1: Catalyze multi-state cooperation to balance conflicting water uses in transboundary surface and groundwater basins while considering climatic variability and change.
Objective 2. Under the Trust Fund climate change focal area, the GEF finances projects for mitigation and adaptation as well as for the preparation of national communications in non-Annex I Parties to the Convention and other enabling activities. Replenishment of the Trust Fund takes place every four years, based on donor pledges.
