DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-10]

The influence of science quantitative and qualitative data and tools are fundamental for integrated water resources management and to move towards climate informed decision and policy-making. Several challenges need to be addressed regarding current governance structures, which are often scattered by multi-sectoral approaches and with overlapping responsibilities, and with limited human and financial capacities. This session focuses on best practices and lessons learned regarding natural and social science integration with policy and decision making, and explores how changes in governance structures could allow for better science-based decision making in the water sector.
