Cooperation Across and within Jurisdictions and Levels for Good Water Governance - Local to Global

This workshop will explore the social, economic, institutional, legal and political dimensions of cooperation from the micro-scale through the municipal, urban, national, regional, transboundary and even global levels. Particular attention will be given to the interwoven linkages between water cooperation, water security and water governance at different scales.

What does the principle of subsidiarity really mean? Are there common principles that apply across all levels? What formal and informal arrangements, frameworks, mechanisms are most effective in delivering results? How can we enable and achieve effective cooperation between administrative boundaries and across sectors - engaging non-water stakeholders, including the private sector?
