It also gives a step-by-step approach on the methodologies needed for its preparation, and clarifications on the role of stakeholders during the process. The toolkit has a specific focus on cities in less-developed and developing countries where significant infrastructure will be built to cater to a growing transportation demand and, therefore, land-use and transport policies can play an important role in shaping mobility demand and mode choice.

    This analytical document shows that climate-driven water variability is a natural phenomenon observed across river basins, but predicted to increase due to climate change. Environmental change of this kind may aggravate political tensions. The study investigates whether basins governed by treaties witness less tension over shared water in comparison with those basins not governed by treaties, over the last sixty years. The results suggest that the presence of a treaty promotes cooperation.
