IWRA Webinar: Land and Water Governance In Urban Regions, 15 December 2014

We are happy to inform you of a webinar for our third policy briefing; Land and Water Governance In Urban Regions.

The panelists have worked together to outline critical points in today’s governance debate. Their unique framework has identified three types of governance; vertical, horizontal, and fluid.  They apply these technical findings to broader questions about water quality and quantity. These questions defy political boundaries. The panelists argue that nations must expand research and monitoring programs, which compile, exchange and share technical data and information to promote and expand good governance. These steps transform water quality issues from a source of conflict to a tool that enhances state cooperation.

Please join us on December 15th, 15:00 – 16:30 (CET)
