DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-72] The importance of having a stakeholder driven process as part of the development of plans, feasibility studies, and basin assessments is important to solve the issues around efficient water management. However, a key question is to what extent does involving all stakeholders potentially complicate development processes. This session is designed to answer that question via a discussion about the advantages of involving all (including the most vulnerable such as young and old citizens, indigenous people, and minorities) during the entire process and how to mitigate the challenges resulting from participatory approaches.
