~~The side event will be an inclusive platform for knowledge and ideas sharing in relation to collaborative modelling, and specifically on how to actively involve stakeholders in informed decision making and as a result empower them to reduce and reuse water for securing water for all.

The event is composed of two main sections. The first section will be used as a space to share knowledge and innovative practices on collaborative modelling for water reduction and reuse that are being implemented worldwide. An introduction to collaborative modelling followed by three example cases implemented by organizations working at various scales from all around the world will be presented. An interactive serious game will be used afterwards to provide hands-on experience to the participants on the use of collaborative modelling for empowering stakeholders to reduce and reuse water. In the second section we aim at launching the global community of practice (CoP) on collaborative modelling followed by an interactive roundtable to discuss expectations and concrete steps on how to best move forward. The event will conclude with general remarks and closure.
