News 7th World Water Forum Group on "Effective Governance"

The OECD will have the pleasure to coordinate the “Effective Governance” Design Group of the Thematic Process of the 7th World Water Forum, to be held in Daegu - Gyeongbuk, Republic of Korea, 12-17 April 2015. The 7th edition of the world’s largest water event will gather participants from the international water community as well as policy and decision makers from every corner of the world to discuss current water issues and catalyze positive change.

A multi-stakeholder taskforce has been set-up to carry out the strategic and operational activities up to the Forum. The taskforce includes core members of the OECD Water Governance Initiative created in the aftermath of the 6th World Water Forum (ASTEE/IWA, OIeau/INBO, UNESCO-IHP, Suez Environment, SIWI, WIN and Transparency International) as well as FAO, Water Youth Network, K-Water and Asan Institute for Policy Studies.

The taskforce has defined 6 priority themes to be covered on the road to the Forum, and would like to call for your contributions. The ambition is to broaden the multi-stakeholder base for dialogue and give any of you a chance to contribute through brainstorming, exchange of best practice, peer-review, showcase of success stories, and participation in the sessions to be held at the Forum.

Water Governance themes to be addressed include :

1.       Stakeholder engagement

2.       Governance and performance of water supply and sanitation


3.       Basin governance

4.       Integrity and transparency

5.       Principles and indicators of water governance

6.       Assessing the performance and effectiveness of water governance
