Water and Climate Diplomacy – Integrative Approaches for Adaptive Action in Transboundary River Basins outlines key water governance instruments that support climate change adaptation in trans- boundary basins. An increasing number of river basins use such instruments, for example data and information sharing mechanisms or flexible water treaties, to address the impacts of climate change and build adaptive capacities. Yet, this report also shows that in many basins such instruments are not employed at all or only to a limited extent. In identifying existing shortcomings, the report asks how such weaknesses could potentially be ameliorated by climate policy instruments.
