  13. 13. Goal 2  Prepare and promote common projects that allow cooperation between regions and partners (South-South cooperation).  Repackage knowledge products in different ways in order to reach other audiences: local communities, practitioners, etc.  Enhance GWP role to bridge the gap between science, policy and practitioners.  Partnerships with leading institutes in generating knowledge at national and regional level to sustain the capacity building process.  Linking capacity building and knowledge products to on-going or up-coming national processes or projects.  Put in place tools for the monitoring and evaluation of impact.  Translate knowledge products into the major languages of the network.  Enhance the use of the Toolbox: partnering with centers of excellence, including in regional or national databases, have different search filters, include a how to use section, etc. 14
  14. 14. It is vital for GWP system to work together in order to access and influence the relevant policy and decision making processes. To this end, GWPO, RWPs, and CWPs should closely collaborate and coordinate, vertically and horizontally, to make changes in status quo and business-as-usual towrds water-secure world. Clear-cut demarcation of roles and mutual help of GWPO, RWPs and CWPs as suggested below will enhance our effectiveness as policy changers.  CWPs: Prime actor to make changes at country level as in supporting IWRM plans and strategies and national development and poverty reduction plans; National consultation platform for governments and stakeholders;  RWPs: Coordinator and knowledge platform of CWPs; Supporter in formulation of Regional/Trans-boundary water plans/strategies; Supporter in forging cooperation with relevant regional organizations/commissions/frameworks; Interlocutor with partners out of water box 15
  15. 15.  GWPO: Actor/negotiator in international community (as Observer in UN-GA); Creater of global message; Lighthouse to guide whole actions of GWP Network; Supporter (technically, financially and other wise) to RWPs and CWPs (through RWPs) Political will for changes will not be created in one day. Partnership wth strategic allies including political parties, river commissions, universities, and practitioners (e.g. water utilities), globally and locally shared knowledges and expertese, awareness raising on our core values such as IWRM, and most of all, dedication of each member of GWP system should be convened strategically in continuous manners to help decision makers to take concrete decisions actions towards desirable change. IWRM, our hallmark, should be kept in spotlight to catalyze changes we desire as in discussion and policy formulation on poverty reduction and sustainable economic development. Recent global discussion process on sustainable development as represented by SDG will provide GWP Network a golden opportunity to help political changes, raise its own 16
