Technical Webinar on Groundwater Monitoring

Under the GEF Drin Project, a Technical Webinar on “Monitoring Strategies in Transboundary Aquifers: Goals, Methods and Tools - The case study of Skadar/Shkoder – Buna/Bojana Delta transboundary alluvial aquifer” is being held on 20 October 2020.


Structured monitoring strategies are paramount to achieving sustainable groundwater resources management and meeting environmental goals. In the case of transboundary aquifer management, structured approaches are necessary in order to facilitate agreement on joint monitoring strategies among the involved countries; once in place, these strategies can enhance trust and cooperation for the management of transboundary water resources.


The Webinar Monitoring Strategies in Transboundary Aquifers: Goals, Methods and Tools - The case study of Skadar/Shkoder – Buna/Bojana Delta transboundary alluvial aquifer” will analyze existing groundwater monitoring strategies, tools and methods for transboundary aquifers and will provide guidelines on how to design monitoring plans that are compliant with EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) regulations and national frameworks. It will also provide specific guidelines for the operation of a monitoring network in the particular two-hydrogeology context (coastal area and inland alluvial aquifer) as applied in the Global Environment Facility Drin project.

Technical webinar

Who should attend?
The Webinar is targeted to administration officials in charge of water resources management, professionals and technicians involved in monitoring plans, environmental professionals and stakeholders concerned with the management of transboundary aquifers and/or the implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive or similar regulations.

The workshop is organised by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), in partnership with the Global Water Partnership – Mediterranean (GWP-Med).
