DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-61]

DESCRIPTION

Debates on water financing are mostly related to investments in infrastructure and services, demand management and on service provision. There is an increasing gap on financing water resource management and governance systems that are critical for all users, aggravated by climate change. IWRM needs a holistic and sustainable approach to overcome the fragmented decision focused mostly on the supply side which is close related to good water governance and financing. This session intends to discuss the needs and means to finance water governance in a coordinated and integrated approach necessary to ensure water security and sustainability, focusing on the demand side, and assessing what functions should be funded, how should they be financed and by whom.
