The OECD Water Governance Initiative convened its second stakeholder meeting on 7-8 November 2013.
Building on key decisions taken during the initiation of the group, the meeting discussed analytical work and recent developments on water governance and water integrity and kicked-off 4 Thematic Working Groups as “building blocks” of the OECD Principles on Water Governance:
- stakeholder engagement for effective water management (led by OECD, and Suez Environment );
- performance and governance of water supply and sanitation (led by ASTEE)
- basin governance (led by INBO/OIEau and UNESCO-IHP); and
- integrity and transparency (led by WIN, TI, SIWI-UNDP Water Governance Facility).
The OECD Water Governance Initiative is an international multi-stakeholder network of around 100 delegates from public, private and not-for-profit sectors launched in March 2013. Twice a year the OECD brings public, private and non-profit actors together to discuss good practices and challenges in water governance. This OECD Water Governance Initiative (WGI) builds on the good governance group and targets developed at the 6th World Water Forum in Marseille 2012.
