Accelerating Partnerships for Water Management Decision making
Impediments in basins cooperative processes result from or drive lack of agreement on water management. It is possible that a reluctance to solve problems emerges as a response to an ineffective implementation of a previous agreements or to shifting national and regional contexts. The Shared Water Facility supports existing successful approaches and where needed develop formal and informal relationships, institutional support, and inter-governmental dialogue through:
Collaboration on tools, methodologies and data to assist coordination of shared water initiatives through training, data sharing, and development of joint initiatives and projects.
Organisation of roundtables among States, the donor community, intergovernmental organisations, private sector and partners to develop strategies for inclusive and long-term transboundary water cooperation.
