OECD online database of water governance stories

To support the implementation of the OECD Principles on Water Governance adopted in June 2015, the OECD Water Governance Initiative is currently working toward an online database of water governance “stories” that can inspire governments and stakeholders move from vision to action. The database, to be launched at the 8th World Water Forum (Brasilia, March 2018), will gather concrete examples that illustrate the OECD Principles in local, regional, basin, national or international contexts. Such practices can share success stories, but also lessons learned from failed attempts, in any OECD member or non-member country. They can be submitted by any government or stakeholder group and will be subject to the selection process and peer-review mechanism described in the enclosed template. To take part in this initiative, you are invited to share your water governance story by filling in the online template, to be found at http://www.oecd.org/gov/regional-policy/What-is-Your-Water-Governance-Story-FORM.pdf, by 15 May 2017.
