AbstractThe Internationally Shared Aquifer Resource Management (ISARM)-Americas initiative has been successful in promoting cooperation in the sharing of data and information on transboundary aquifer systems (TAS) amid 24 countries from Argentina to Canada. Over a period of seven years (2003-2009), the ISARM-Americas initiative, jointly sponsored and coordinated by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Organization of American States (OAS), succeeded in inventorying 73 TAS in the American hemisphere. The initiative has produced two books; one containing the inventory of the 73 TAS in 2007, and a second one describing the legal and institutional aspects of the 73 TAS, in 2008. A third book is in preparation with a synthesis of the socio-economic, environmental and climatic aspects of the 73 TAS. The ISARM-Americas group is now preparing a regional strategy for the management of the transboundary aquifer systems in the American hemisphere. The regional strategy will be published as a fourth book in 2010 with a synthesis of the socio-economic, environmental and climatic aspects of the 73 TAS. This paper summarizes the current activities towards the preparation of the third book.
