Multi-level Governance for Transboundary Water, Climate, and Disaster Management and Risk Governance
The Transboundary Freshwater Security Governance Train heads to the next stop! The 11th online interactive session on the 15th of June 2022 explores the multi-level governance in transboundary water context with a particular focus on disaster management, such as flood management.
In this interactive session we will learn how ‘integrated governance systems’ allow participation and capacity strengthening of communities alongside and complimenting the usual top-heavy strategies. Experts and case studies are used in the session to present how MLG operates in transboundary water management.
The participants will explore the following questions:
Can MLG approaches be a feasible way for communities and states in their resilience efforts?
Can MLG approach help advancing and enhancing measures for transboundary cooperation, better coordination and collaboration across scales and sectors?
In addition, the session will examine institutional relationships within the MLG guidelines that point to the assessment of mapping capacities and competencies of stakeholders and institutions.
This online event is co-organized by the Global Water Partnership (GWP) and the United Nations University Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS).
