Event Regional Forum on Local Water Governance: “Water is everybody’s business.”

Under the patronage of His Royal Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan, the EMPOWERS Partnership is holding a Regional Forum on Local Water Governance, entitled “Water is everybody’s business.” The Forum will take place in Amman, Jordan on June 6-7, 2007.

The Forum will also bring together representatives of donor organizations, international and regional water networks, NGOs and academia. The Forum's principal objective is to promote a policy environment that is conducive to participatory stakeholder based approaches to planning and implementing water sector activities. It will explore modalities for embedding and scaling up these approaches in local and national planning for this sector in countries of the region. Participants will examine, discuss and endorse recommendations, that can achieve a wide level of acceptance as the basis for a new approach to water management in the region. The Forum is inspired by a three-year consultation process with a wide range of stakeholders throughout the region.

See the Concept Paper for Regional Forum on Local Water Governance (EN) - (AR).
