CALL FOR PAPERS: The Management of the Guarani Aquifer System: An Example of Cooperation

In August 2010 Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay, countries that share the Guarani Aquifer System (GAS), signed a new agreement for the management of this complex system. The four countries are now involved in the ratification process and in the negotiations of instititutional aspects, including discussions regarding an annex to the Agreement on arbitration procedures. Against this background, the management of the GAS can benefit from a debate about the steps that have been taken until now, and about the challenges that lay ahead. The conference “The Management of the Guarani Aquifer System: An Example of Cooperation” provides this opportunity and the organisers invite researchers, consultants and water management experts to submit an abstract for one of the three sessions of the conference:

  1. An assessment of the scientific knowledge on the Guarani Aquifer system
  2. Current use and protection of the Guarani Aquifer System
  3. The Guarani Aquifer System and regional cooperation

Deadline: April 30, 2011
