UN-Water Analyzes Water Coordination Efforts at Country Level

10.04.2014 -

Coordination can assist countries take great steps forward when managed effectively to support the development of national policies and strategies for the water sector, shows new report from a UN-Water Task Force. Looking at experiences from countries, the report explores emerging lessons and argues that the majority of countries are adopting a more integrated approach to water resources management but that the process itself remains challenging. The need for coordination is increasing and water governance issues like policy and strategy, river basin management, support to development of regional water-sharing agreements, participation of stakeholders, competition among stakeholders and sectors and the human right to water are only some of the issues that call for consultation and coordination.
