Background

Water resources management issues are fundamental and relevant at the hydro-geological scale of the Guiana Shield. Indeed, all the countries of the Guiana Shield share trans-boundary river basins and use of common water resources, for example, drinking water, transport, energy, and fishing. Whereas many projects focus on biodiversity or forest ecosystems issues, there are few joint initiatives on water management. Yet, hydrographic systems preservation is vital and essential on our territories, like everywhere else in the world.
