On World Water Day, this article highlights the urgent challenges posed by climate change, population growth, and water scarcity underscoring the critical need for transboundary water cooperation. These global issues demand robust international frameworks for the equitable, sustainable management of shared water resources to prevent conflict and promote prosperity. Key principles for effective cooperation include equitable and reasonable utilization, the no harm rule, prior notification and consultation, sustainable management and conservation, dispute resolution mechanisms, and data sharing and joint monitoring. Implementing international water agreements involves joint infrastructure projects and integrated water resource management plans, supported by the international community through technical assistance, funding, and capacity-building. Addressing these challenges through cooperative frameworks can transform shared water resources from potential sources of conflict into catalysts for cooperation, development, and global peace.
