Multilevel Water Governance

When: 9 – 20 September 2019
Where: The Hague, Netherlands
Apply by: 2 August 2019

Water provision and governance of water involve complex systems and the coordination of different stakeholders at all levels government. Adding to the challenge are the political and institutional contexts of the country. In many contexts, reforms for effective water management are hampered by an unclear allocation of roles and responsibilities, territorial fragmentation and limited capacity at the local level.

From 9 to 20 September 2019, The Hague Academy for Local Governance will organise a two-week, practice-oriented training course to address water governance. Leading international experts and practitioners will provide unique insights into international best practices and water governance tools. Participants will learn to actively apply the five building blocks required for sound water governance.

In addition to understanding the theoretical concepts and international cases, the participants will visit several Dutch examples of water projects. These field visits will focus on private-public cooperation and the approach of Integrated Water Resource Management. They will also learn how to deal with high-water levels, dikes management, flood safety, climate change and environmental concerns.
