The need for investment to guarantee water security poses challenges on good governance and political stability. In-depth debate is necessary to improve financing of innovative, water-friendly technology, and of measures to cope with uncertainty related to water. Specific action requires strong capacities and good governance structures and mechanisms, as well as the ability to share experiences, practices and knowledge. Any action should consider long-term sustainability.
The 8th World Water Forum will host focused discussions on these cross-cutting subjects – capacity, governance, sharing and sustainability – in order to identify the main hindrances and actions required to overcome difficulties that are common to the 6 core themes (climate, people, development, urban, ecosystems and financing).
You can contribute to the debate by commenting on the following set of questions:CAPACITY (June 12 to July 2) - 3 weeks:
- How can education and capacity building for water be enhanced to achieve better financing of water?
- In relation to financial resources, what opportunities do new technologies offer for the improvement of water monitoring? What about for information communication technology (ICT) and decision/policy making?
- How do international cooperation initiatives enhance water capacity development in search of adequate financial resources?
