Groundwater governance is complex and needs to be tailored to local conditions. In the case of transboundary aquifer systems, the international dimension adds complexity. International cooperation and a wide range of international initiatives produce significant added value. This cooperation is instrumental in enhancing and disseminating information about groundwater, in developing and promoting approaches and tools for its proper management, and in raising global commitment for action on priority issues, such as the millennium development goals (MDGs) and sustainable development. Ensuring that groundwater is adequately incorporated into such global actions is a challenge for all groundwater professionals. [author abstract]
