This paper is a background document to the International Waters Program Study of 2002. It presents a review of GEF actions that have contributed to the development and implementation of water-related global and regional environmental agreements. The review is regionally based to emphasize linkages between global frameworks and regional responses, and between general principles and the specificities of the transboundary issues of each region.
