DESCRIPTION

Water governance raises the question of city boundaries for water and the need for institutional coordination among key stakeholders. This requires an enabling environment that allows cross sectoral urban planning that promote water as a major asset and involving cross-scale partnerships between technical, legal, economic and social actors. Communication and awareness raising are central to transparent and cost-effective management, with the engagement of all stakeholders and the adoption of water integrity practices. Information systems designed with the perspective of integration enable participatory processes regarding the multiple uses of water as well as risk mitigation of water scarcity and the consequences of extreme events.
