    International Office for Water (Permanent Technical Secretariat of the International Network of Basin Organizations) in partnership with Patricia Wouters (GWP Technical Committee and Dundee UNESCO-HELP Centre), Nataliya NIKIFOROVA (UNECE), Jose Luis Martin Bordes, Alice Aureli, Raya Marina Stephan, Neno Kukuric. Transboundary water of international rivers in the world constitutes 60% of the water around the globe (Wolf et al., ). 40% of the river basins around the world are transboundary water-ways shared by two or more countries worldwide (Wolf, ).

    The observations of the surface water pollution are carried out on rivers, 15 reservoirs, 8 lakes and estuaries, by points of observations including measuring sections. The observations of surface water pollution are based on physical, chemical, and biological parameters with simultaneous measurement of hydrological parameters. RIVER BASINS is a conference which provides a platform for the exchange of recent progresses and research in the field of river basin management. This includes the quantification of water and mass fluxes, the investigation of processes in river systems and ecological research, as well as the implementation of promising management strategies.

In large international river basins, there are multiple levels of government: national, provincial, and lists from developed regions such as North America and Australia are rarely experienced in dealing with issues requiring international negotiation.

This book details the international rules and compensation procedures and is intended for use by governmental officials, international lawyers and jurists.

The 5th International September in. Countries may desire unused water use or pollution rights to preserve the option of future use, but unexercised rights have a bargaining value over and above any such option value. Efforts to secure rational systems for surveillance and control of transboundary water pollution are summarized and general principles proposed which could be utilized in a step by step approach towards comprehensive water quality management within international river basins.

International rivers are a substantial source of the world’s freshwater supply. The resulting interdependence between nations leads to resource conflicts as upstream nations impose water quantity and quality externalities on downstream countries.

As examples of international externalities, these conflicts can be analyzed using game theory. Interactions between pollution sources, water contamination, and ecological integrity are complex phenomena and hard to access.

To comprehend this subject of study, it is crucial to use advanced statistical tools, which can unveil cause-effect relationships between pressure from surface waters, released contaminants, and damage to the ecological status.
