DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-79]

Drafting and applying policies that make solutions available from lab to practice, requires policy and decision makers to be prepared to take advantage of S&T developments. Scientists and technology developers shall make these advancements “understandable” to “policy ears”. This session will explore the capacity needs in both sides to communicate and collaborate better. It builds on the conclusions of the 7th World Water Forum, highlighting the importance of policies enabling lab-to-practice solutions, using case studies to illustrate challenges and benefits of this approach and the way forward.
