Rooms 19, 20
This session aims to introduce and strengthen the international cooperation projects for water resources within the framework of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP). In addition to this main objective, it seeks to integrate institutions of the CPLP countries that manage water resources, using the discussion area of the World Forum for recognition of common and shared challenges, as well as national initiatives that allow greater efficiency and range management in the countries.
In order to do so, the water directors of the countries will be presented the results of participatory workshops, held with the countries in the year 2017. After this presentation, there will be a debate about the main opportunities and constraints to the establishment of a Water Management Development Agenda.
The main questions to be addressed in this session are: i) what are the main challenges of water resources management in the CPLP countries; II) how to develop the governance of water resources management in those countries; III) how countries can organize to meet internal and external objectives and goals (ODS, Paris); vi) what is the role of international cooperation in advancing the management of water resources in the countries; v) how to build a strategy for South-South cooperation in the area of water resources.
