DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-73] 

The session aims at fostering the cultures and mechanisms of participation by involving and empowering women, youth, indigenous people, traditional and local communities, and civil society on an equal basis together with men, legislators and institutions for more efficient water management, and inclusive and fair water governance. It seeks to foster the development of the capacity and leadership of youth and women as a key component to equitable participation in decision-making at project, as well as at policy levels. The new culture of water governance should open space and modalities to utilize the limitless and untapped potential of youth, women and indigenous activists for user-driven design as agents of change in accordance with legislation, national and regional practice and human rights.
