Wednesday - 14:30 - 16:00

THEME

Governance

ROOM

Room 28

DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-93] Water is a fragmented sector where co-ordination is essential to manage interdependencies across multiple scales, responsible authorities and policy domains. But in practice, role and responsibilities for the management of water resources, services, and water-related disasters are still highly fragmented; combining multiple scales is still a challenge, despite greater attention to the basin level; and the broad range of public, private and non-profit stakeholders affected by decisions on water still do not all have a say on how policies are designed or implemented. Is water governance well-equipped to handle these challenges? The session will explore what can be done at city, basin and country level to enhance co-ordination across policies, places and people.
