6th meeting of the OECD Water Governance Initiative


2-3 November 2015, OECD, Paris

The meeting provided an opportunity to discuss the latest developments in the Global Water Agenda and to share knowledge on recent water governance projects and research. Breakout sessions discussed expectations and needs to follow-up on the OECD Principles on Water Governance, especially in terms of scaling-up good practices and drawing lessons from pitfalls or traps to avoid. In-depth brainstorming was carried out in smaller groups on the ways forward for the WGI, with strong support from members towards a best practice database and a set of water governance indicators. Participatory modelling on water governance was also pilot-tested to foster lively exchanges on real-life situations to manage water-related trade-offs at catchment level.
