This course explores the building blocks of water governance: administrative, planning, financial, legal, stakeholder & cooperation through (inter)national best practices and study visits.
Water provision and governance of water involve complex systems and the coordination of different stakeholders at all levels government. Adding to the challenge are the political and institutional contexts of the country. In many contexts, reforms for effective water management are hampered by an unclear allocation of roles and responsibilities, territorial fragmentation and limited capacity and funds at the local level.
This course addresses the six building blocks of sound water governance: administrative, planning, financial, legal, stakeholder and cooperation in a balanced mix of theory, (inter)national best practices and study visit illustrating the Dutch water governance system.
Participants will get a unique insight into international best practices and water governance tools and work actively to apply the building blocks for sound water governance for their own local context.
