Topic: 4. Water policy and governance Date: 2017-05-29 Time from: 15:30:00 Time to: 17:00:00 Room: Cozumel 2
There is little debate that water policy making is most effective when informed by science, yet communication gaps and divides endure across communities of practices. To foster dialogue and put the "science-policy interface" into practice, the OECD and IWRA have partnered to develop a special issue of Water International focusing on governance. The special issue seeks to provide the scientific underpinning to the OECD Principles on Water Governance, which set 12 standards for effective, efficient and inclusive design and implementation of water policies. The special session will convene lead authors to share highlights from their articles for the special issue, and will gather economists, policymakers, scientists, legal experts, practitioners and engineers to engage in lively discussions on what makes water governance good or bad.
