GWI joins 11th Meeting of the OECD Water Governance Initiative
GWI joined the OECD’s Water Governance Initiative (WGI) in October 2018, and participated in the 11th meeting of the WGI in Spain on 12-13 November 2018.
The meeting gathered 80+ practitioners, policymakers and representatives from major stakeholder groups, to discuss WGI contributions to global development agendas and the 2019-2021 programme of work, share knowledge and experiences, discuss the role of water governance in circular economy, and learn from Spain’s water governance experiences.
The purpose of the WGI is to provide a multi-stakeholder technical platform to share knowledge, experience and best practices on water governance across levels of government. The multi-stakeholder network of 100+ delegates from public, private and non-profit sectors gather twice a year in a Policy Forum to share on-going reforms, projects, lessons and good practices in support of better governance in the water sector. WGI was launched on 27-28 March 2013.
GWI’s participation in the initiative will provide opportunities to provide input on Australian water reforms, the emergence of water markets and other valuable lessons of water management in Australia for an international audience.
The agenda, list of participants, presentations, and pictures from the November meeting are all accessible online.
