Slide1:  . UNDP Water Governance key to poverty eradication and sustainable development UNDP is committed to contribute towards meeting the targets of::  UNDP is committed to contribute towards meeting the targets of: …by 2015 to halve the proportion of people who are unable to reach, or to afford, safe drinking water (MDG) Halving the number of people with out access to basic sanitation by 2015 (WSSD) To stop the unsustainable exploitation of water resources, by developing water management strategies at the regional, national and local levels, which promote both equitable access and adequate supplies. (Millennium Development Report). Additional UNDP concerns:  shared water is a potential source of conflict - but can as well be seen as an effective means to build trust and cooperation between countries - shallow ground water - the main source of safe water for poor people - is increasingly becoming polluted and depleted; - present waste management practices, such as water-borne sanitation are many times unaffordable and environmentally unsustainable; - climate change and variability increase the vulnerability of the poor and has to be considered in the governance of water; - inadequate involvement of women, esp. in decision making Additional UNDP concerns Slide4:  Water cross-cutting all WEHAB areas Water Health Energy Agriculture Biodiversity Slide5:  . UNDP’s Water Governance Strategy Sound and effective water governance is the key to poverty eradication and sustainable water management (water as a natural resource and for service delivery) Six service lines to promote livelihood opportunities for the poor through equitable, efficient and sustainable use of water resources and related services delivered through UNDP country, regional and global programmes in partnerships: GWP, WSP, WSSCC, ICLEI, UNDESA, WB, UNICEF, Sida, DGIS, WaterAid Why water governance?:  Why water governance? “The water crisis is essentially a crisis of governance” Draws attention to equitable, efficient and sustainable use of water resources The livelihoods of the poor are directly linked to adequate quality and quantity of water resources and related services Prospects for economic growth remain highly dependent on water and other natural resources The capacity of countries to pursue IWRM, meet new demands and manage risks depends on their ability to promote and put in place sound and effective water governance systems Water governance is key to sustainable development What’s Water Governance?:  What’s Water Governance? …the range of political, social, economic and administrative systems that are in place to develop and manage water resources, and the delivery of water services, at different levels of society.

Up-stream and down-stream conflicts regarding riparian rights and access to water. Strong tendencies to divert public resources for personal gain, unpredictability in the use of laws and, a number of regulations and licensing practices, which impede markets and voluntary action and encourage corruption and other forms of rent–seeking behaviour. Service Lines :  local management of water resources and water service delivery - national capacities to plan, implement and monitor water development & conservation (policies, legislation, inst.) - countries capacity to address global and regional water challenges (river basin organizations, global negotiations); - cross cutting: - climate change & variability, risk mgmt - gender mainstreaming of IWRM - capacity building Service Lines The Dialogue on Water Governance:  The Dialogue on Water Governance Identifying problems => towards solutions, facilitating reform Providing examples, good and bad!
