This session will take an interactive approach and draw on participants' expertise to assess the governance challenges and opportunities facing the water sector at the local, national and transboundary levels in implementing effective adaptation to climate change as well as equitable and sustainable utilisation of freshwater. In addition, it will draw upon case studies from countries and basins in different geographic regions to highlight innovative practices and lessons from around the world. The primary audience is policy makers, government officials, relevant stakeholders and professionals working in the field at different administrative level and interested in water governance and adaptive management. Special attention will paid to the local level since experience on the ground could offer successful examples of cooperative and adaptive water management which could be replicated/scaled up at national and transboundary level.
