Example text

Surface and underground water resources are often managed as separate and distinct sources. However, such individualized management does not provide an integrated understanding of either the water sources or their use. Prior to implementing transboundary water use allocation or transfer, participants should conduct a comprehensive water resources assessment. Certain parameters define the framework of the Agreement. The Parties should specify the extreme hydrologic events that the Agreement will cover.

Performance-based audits should also be done in order to provide reasonable assurance that program goals and objectives are met; resources are adequately safeguarded and efficiently utilized; reliable data are obtained, maintained, and fairly disclosed in reports; and laws and regulations are complied with. Adequate internal controls should be developed and maintained and internal audits should be made on a regular basis. 2 (capital financing by signatory parties). 1 ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION 1.
