  Name: Transboundary Waters Assessment Project (TWAP)
  Abbreviation: TWAP
  Description: The long-term goal of the Transboundary Waters Assessment Project (TWAP) is to promote real investment in management of transboundary water systems through strong stakeholder engagement. The TWAP Data Portal will be an important tool for reaching this goal. The TWAP Data Portal is a dedicated platform for integrating data from various sources and providing a tool for visualising the main TWAP assessment results. This platform allows to easily share geographically referenced thematic information between different organizations.
