News New IUCN Publication: NEGOTIATE - Reaching Agreements Over Water‏

IUCN is pleased to announce the publication of a new toolkit "NEGOTIATE - Reaching Agreements Over Water"
Editors: John Dore, Julia Robinson and Mark Smith NEGOTIATE: a vital new resource for those interested in designing, leading, or participating in negotiation and consensus building on sustainable water resources management.

Water practitioners are increasingly called upon to negotiate workable agreements about how to best use, manage and care for water resources.

NEGOTIATE makes the case for constructive engagement and cooperative forms of negotiation in dealing with complex water issues. It guides users through ways of building meaningful participation of stakeholders in decision making over water by unpacking constructive approaches such as multi-stakeholder platforms (MSPs) and consensus building. NEGOTIATE finally focuses on the diversity of agreements which can be produced to regulate or encourage fairer and more effective water allocation and use.

NEGOTIATE will help water professionals negotiate workable agreements on how to best manage water resources.
