Session 9.c.3 - What's Your Water Governance Story? Identifying and scaling-up best practice across cities, basins and countries

Thursday - 11:00 - 12:30

THEME

Governance

ROOM

Room 28

DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-95] 

Implementing the water-related SDGs will require countries to translate global goals into concrete actions on a number of water topics. It will imply that countries address governance challenges related to water policy design, regulation and implementation in the management of water resources, services and water-related disasters. Sharing and learning from best practices and pitfalls to avoid can help overcome these “gaps”, by fostering peer-to-peer dialogue and bench-learning across cities, basins and countries facing similar types of governance challenges. The session will discuss “stories” of how good water governance can be put into practice to inspire decision makers and stakeholders to strive for more effective governance.
