Stakeholder Engagement in the Water Sector: How to Get There?

The size and nature of water challenges ahead requires a coordinated effort among policy makers and the wide range of stakeholders who play a role in, and are affected by, actions and outcomes in the water sector. All governments now acknowledge that policies, however well-intentioned, need stakeholder engagement to fit with local realities and to be implemented in practice, and anyway, people demand it: they are more educated than before, and in today’s expanding middle-class, the top-down heavy approach no longer washes.

During the 6th World Water Forum, the session on stakeholder engagement concluded with the lack of evidence-based analyses on the drivers, mechanisms, costs, benefits and impact of stakeholder engagement in water-related decisions. Three years later, the session at the 7th WWF provides an opportunity to launch the OECD report “Stakeholder Engagement for Inclusive Water Governance” which provides such evidence, based on a Survey across 215 stakeholders, and a compendium of 69 case studies. The session will also provide a platform for showcasing success stories and innovative tools for inclusive decision-making. Parallel roundtable discussions will dig deeper into implementation issues with a view to preparing an Action Plan.
