dc.description.abstractThe concept of international co-operation for the development of transboundary river/lake/groundwater basins is not a new issue - it goes way back into the history of mankind. Unfortunately despite this fact, in Africa only handful of transboundary river/lake basins have any form of intergovernmental organisations charged with integrated development. The experience of the Mekong River Commission was presented as a case study for African experts as one of the most successful example of co-operation amongst riparian countries with diverse political and cultural views. In this case the participating countries being Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam have most successfully managed to establish and strengthen links for co-operation at a technical level in order to enhance basin-wide development. The strategy of making river/lake basins as geographical units multi-purpose planning is fitting since they are natural entities which can be viewed as vehicles for socio-economic development of riparian countries. It is necessary to note that the river basin units form eco-system continuum in which careful planning could mean efficiency and equity. The river basin unit can accommodate sustainable development by encompassing a range of activities that seek to maintain an equilibrium of the eco-systems and bio-diversity and therefore enable optimum utilization of resources through proper and rational planning.en
