The Northwest Power and Conservation Council with the Columbia Basin Trust commissioned the Transboundary Cooperation in the International Columbia River Basin report, which assesses the existing areas of cooperation and collaboration across the Columbia River Basin. This includes the research of OSU Graduate Ingrid Timboe.
Transboundary Waters Assessment Programme - River Basins Component
In partnership with UNEP-DHI and GEF, OSU researchers collaborated on the Transboundary Water Assessment Programme - River Basin Component to complete the most comprehensive assessment of the world’s 286 transboundary river basins and to identify hotspots at risk from a variety of issues, including water quantity, water quality, ecosystems, governance, and socioeconomics.
US Western Water Institutional Solutions Project
An eight-year collaboration between Oregon State University and the US Bureau of Reclamation geared towards understanding water conflict and cooperation in the western United States and increasing the US Bureau of Reclamation’s institutional capacity.

Digitized inventory of current and historical international river basins*Under Construction*
A Geographic Information System (GIS) of international river basins and their riparian countries, for the years 1948-2000.
Basins at Risk
The Basins at Risk project (BAR) addressed a series of overarching gaps in research on freshwater resources and international conflict by providing a quantitative, global scale exploration of the relationship between freshwater resources and conflict.
Countries at Risk Project*Coming soon - Under Construction*
The Countries at Risk Project assesses countries with high interdependency on shared transboundary freshwater resources and high potential human security risk. Case studies include Afghanistan, China, Iraq, Moldova, and Sudan.
Indigenous Water Conflict Resolution Methods
This paper investigates how indigenous peoples of two drylands regions – the Berbers of the High Atlas Mountains and the Bedouin of the Negev Desert – approach negotiations brought about by water scarcity and fluctuation, and their methods are described in the context of current international hydropolitics.
Hydropolitical Vulnerability and Resilience along International Waters
A five-part series of continental reports focused on the hydropolitical
vulnerability and resilience along international waters. It provides a
comprehensive assessment of hydropolitical vulnerability throughout the
world, along with treaty information, cooperative agreements and
pertinent basin and regional maps.
Regional Water Governance Benchmarking Project (ReWaB) ReWaB is a study of water governance capacity in five Middle East North Africa Region (MENA) countries: Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Turkey, and Oman. Along with a collection of searchable legal and policy documents from each of the countries the project has also included workshops in the MENA region, and will provide a framework for assessing water governance in each country and the region.
