Room 24

DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-76] 

Decision makers and water related stakeholders need information and the development of knowledge skills and capabilities relative to socio-environmental processes and dimensions of water. Participatory processes imply different stakeholders should be empowered to enter into dialogue around water-related issues, and this is key for better integrated water resources management processes in emerging, developing and transitioning countries.  Training case studies for specific decision makers or for new technologies can be used to facilitate problem-oriented dialogues and to improve interdisciplinary education processes. Gaps and best practices can be shared to bring lessons to suggest new pathways.
