DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-51] 

Can integrated solutions to water management challenges that consider the right mix of natural and integrated systems help to avoid conflicts between users and facilitate cooperation in the long-term? Although primarily targeted at improving the economic, social and environmental benefits of water resources management, considering and understanding the multiple co-benefits (including building resilience) or threats in a holistic approach, remains a challenge. Traditional knowledge from indigenous peoples and local communities can also help support a cooperative long-term sustainable approach. Appropriate governance structures that foster stakeholder participation will be examined.
