#SIWISofa: Perspective on water governance

Monday 24 August | 14.00-14.30 | Room: Exhibition Hall

Improved governance is crucial for solving the world’s water problems. Where water is lacking or unevenly distributed; solutions can be found in the ways that we collectively manage water resources and systems for service provision. Where water is wasted or contaminated; solutions can be found in the ways that society motivates and complies with regulations and norms for caring for water in households, institutions, industry and agriculture. Water governance is what determines who gets water when and how – and how that water is cherished or wasted. This SIWI sofa brings in three experts from the Water Governance Fcility to discuss the evolution of water governance during the past decade and the perspectives for the coming SDG period.
