Water Governance Initiative

 

 

A POLICY FORUM TO SHARE GOOD PRACTICES

The OECD Water Governance Initiative is an international multi-stakeholder network of members from the public, private and non-for-profit sectors gathering twice a year to share good practices in support of better governance in the water sector. 

 


OBJECTIVES

Provide a multi-stakeholder technical platform to share knowledge, experience and best practices on water governance across levels of government.


Advise governments in taking the needed steps for effective water reforms through peer-to-peer dialogue and stakeholder engagement across public, private and non-profit sectors.


Provide a consultation mechanism to raise the profile of governance in the Global Water Agenda (Sustainable Development Goals, World Water Forum, Habitat III, COP etc.).


Support the implementation of the OECD Principles on Water Governance in interested member and non-member countries, basins and cities by scaling up best practices and developing indicators.


Foster continuity on governance discussions at global level, in particular by supporting the Implementation Roadmap on Governance of the 7th World Water Forum (Korea, 2015) up to the 8th World Water Forum (Brazil, 2018).
