DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-81] Failed investments to improve collaborations between policy makers, bureaucrats and S&T communities are not rare. Water solutions need a change of mindset, and institutions and governance need to provide the right environment for professionals to develop the necessary new skills. This session will explore the institutional, structural and governance needs to enable capacity building for S&T and policy makers to work together. Identify research gaps and needs, the business opportunities for the public and private sectors and the benefits to society in general. Case studies will illustrate successful and failed attempts leading to propose recommendations and a way forward.
