News Time to nominate candidates for GWP Steering Committee

It is now time to nominate candidates for GWP Steering Committe. There will be 4 vacant positions after the next Steering Committe meeting (spring of 2008).

Nominations do not need to come from an organization. Candidates can be nominated by individuals. Please note that the nominees should not already hold an official position in GWP, or they would have to withdraw from it should they be appointed as an SC member.

A Steering Committee Member is expected to attend two meetings a year, normally of 2 days each (all expenses paid for), engage in frequent e-mail exchanges and correspondence and undertake reviews and contribute views on a variety of issues concerning GWP, its policies, budget and activities. The Steering Committee is like a Board therefore the experience with the role and functioning of Boards is essential.

Successful candidates should be committed to the promotion of sustainable IWRM, should be able to contribute towards the development of GWP strategic direction, be able to open doors for GWP, operate at high level and have contacts at most senior national, regional or international levels. Experience in organizational matters, board representation and strategic planning would be an advantage. This time around, we are particularly seeking to strengthen the SC by seeking candidates with strong competence and (practical) experience with any of the following IWRM climate change, agriculture/ irrigation, private sector (water-related) the economics of water and financing related issues.

Nominations are requested before April 16th, 2008.
