  • 5. What is water governance?Water governance is defined by the political, social, economic and administrative systems that are in place, and which directly or indirectly affect the use, development and management of water resources and the delivery of water service delivery at different levels of society. Importantly, the water sector is a part of broader social, political and economic developments and is thus also affected by decisions outside of the water sector.

  • 6. What is water governance?Water governance addresses among other things:1. Principles such as equity and efficiency in water resource and servicesallocation and distribution, water administration based on catchments, the needfor integrated water management approaches and the need to balance water usebetween socio-economic activities and ecosystems.2. The formulation, establishment and implementation of water policies,legislation and institutions.3. Clarification of the roles of government, civil society and the private sectorand their responsibilities regarding ownership, management and administrationof water resources and services, for example: ( read notes) Presentation by: Asif Kabani and Maliha A.

Tools & Approaches towardsWater GovernanceBuilding knowledge and capacityDialoguing and networkingFinancing and investment choicesGoing beyond the water sectorIndigenous Approach to Development Presentation by: Asif Kabani and Maliha A. Kabani Email: kabani.asif@gmail.com | Skype: kabaniasif
  • 13. Building knowledge and capacityCapacity building is a cross-cutting issue at the foundation of many of the changes required to introduce sustainable water resources management and services and address thegovernance issues surrounding the establishment of an appropriate policy and institutional enabling environment.Inadequate capacity continues to be a major constraint to realise water reform. Some of the areas that require enhanced capacity include, for example, integrated water resources management, transboundary waters, gender mainstreaming and institutional/technical innovations and adaptability. Presentation by: Asif Kabani and Maliha A. Kabani Email: kabani.asif@gmail.com | Skype: kabaniasif
  • 14. Dialoguing and networking A critical aspect of water reform is how it is being communicated within governmentagencies and to the public and stakeholders. It is important that reform is communicated in ways that are understood by sector players and the public. Dialogue and networking must be understood as being a long-term partnership and commitment towards reforming the water sector. It is not a “one-off” event. It must be perceived as a long-term process that is attempting to change the relationshipsbetween government and other stakeholders and to form a basis for an ongoing, effective and fruitful dialogue and networking at local and national levels. Presentation by: Asif Kabani and Maliha A. Kabani Email: kabani.asif@gmail.com | Skype: kabaniasif
  • 15. Financing and investment choicesClearly, the water sector in many countries is under-financed. Currently, governmenttaxation funds the management of water resources and services in many developing countries. Most developing country governments have so far not been able to raiseadequate funds through taxation or the application of water tariffs for cost recovery. The challenging task of raising additional funds should also make decision makersaware of the need to complement capital-intensive investments with alternative low- cost technologies. Despite the attention given them, private companies and entrepreneurs are only modestly involved in water-related services. Presentation by: Asif Kabani and Maliha A. Kabani Email: kabani.asif@gmail.com | Skype: kabaniasif
  • 16. Going beyond the water sectorDrivers and policies outside the water sector have more impact on water management than do many policies championed and implemented by water-related ministries. Other development sectors, such as energy, planning, land and ecosystem management, trade, etc, need to identify trade-offs and synergies linked to the water sector, in order to enhance policy impacts in all sectors and avoid some adverse effects on water.Examples of win-win situations abound - whether created by governments, communities or businesses - that point to promoting deliberate cooperation between water and non-water actors and integrating water issues into external decisions. International organizations, notably the UN system, can provide support and expertise togovernments, help civil society build capacity and catalyse leadership in the private sector.

  • 17. Making change happen Water Governance for Sustainable Development Presentation by: Asif Kabani and Maliha A. Kabani Email: kabani.asif@gmail.com | Skype: kabaniasif
  • 18. Making change happenWater Governance for Sustainable DevelopmentWhy are certain water decisions made but not others?What stakeholders are involved?What principles and formal and informal rules and regulations wereapplied?Many countries are currently in the process of changing the ways of howwater is being governed.Practical point of view this means formulating, setting in place andimplementing water policies, legislation and regulations Presentation by: Asif Kabani and Maliha A. Kabani Email: kabani.asif@gmail.com | Skype: kabaniasif
  • 19. Making change happenWater GovernanceDespite country water reform variations, most reforms typicallyinclude components linked to:• Decentralisation of water decision making,• Increasing stakeholder participation,• Promoting incentives for more and better public-private partnerships, including privatization of water services and community involvement,• Principles of integrated water resources management and river basin management approaches, and• Clarification of institutional roles and responsibilities, such as through formal legislation and informal customary water rights and by linking water rights and land tenure, for example.Despite the negative impact of corruption on water resourcesand services, remedial anti-corruption measures are not beingadequately addressed in water reform. Presentation by: Asif Kabani and Maliha A. Kabani Email: kabani.asif@gmail.com | Skype: kabaniasif
  • 20. Water decision making Decentralization and participation in water decision making Decentralization and participation play important roles in water reform. Through decentralization the government delegates some of its decision making powers and management responsibilities to lower levels of government, the private sector or community and civil society organizations. Many countries are currently moving away from conventional forms of water governance, which usually have been dominated by a top-down approach, towardsbottom-up approaches, which combine the experience, knowledge and understanding of various local groups and people. Presentation by: Asif Kabani and Maliha A. Kabani Email: kabani.asif@gmail.com | Skype: kabaniasif
  • 21. Water integrity and accountability How? For starters, corruption siphons off scarce monetary resources and diminishes countries’ prospects for providing water and sanitation for all and sound water resources management. Corruption: • Reduces economic growth and discourages investments within the water sector, • Undermines performance and effectiveness of both public and private sectors, leading to inefficient and unequal allocation and distribution of water resources and related services, • Decreases and diverts government revenues that could be used to strengthen budgets and improve water and other services, especially for poor people, • Makes existing legislation, rules and regulations ineffective, which can drive increased water pollution and over-abstraction of ground and surface water, and • Dilutes the integrity of the public service sector, since discretionary decision making creates unpredictability and inequalities and can circumvent the rules of law and justice. Presentation by: Asif Kabani and Maliha A. Kabani Email: kabani.asif@gmail.com | Skype: kabaniasif
  • 22. Partnership choices?Frameworks for sustainable water development. Some key elements in successful partnerships include:• Shared vision• Compatibility• Equitable representation• Legitimacy• Communication• Mutual trust and• Understanding among partners and Govt’s Presentation by: Asif Kabani and Maliha A. Kabani Email: kabani.asif@gmail.com | Skype: kabaniasif
  • 23. Clarifying roles of water institutionsThe establishment of well-defined and coherent roles and responsibilities, such asthrough legislation of formal and informal water rights, leads to a number of social,economic and environmental benefits: It improves the efficiency of existing water It promotes equitable water use between supply allocations. For example, those existing user groups. It can also facilitate requiring additional water resources, such improved access to water by groups that as growing cities, can increasingly meet previously have been denied formal or their needs by acquiring the water rights informal water rights. of those who are using water for low value purposes. It increases willingness to take economic risks for investing in improved water management and practices in both rural It provides a basis for improving and urban contexts and thus impacting hydrological data and information to positively on productive livelihood manage the resource more effectively. opportunities. It can also reduce the pressure on water resources as it is likely that those with water rights have incentives for sustaining water. Presentation by: Asif Kabani and Maliha A. Kabani Email: kabani.asif@gmail.com | Skype: kabaniasif
  • 24. Transboundary water cooperationSustainable Regional Development Even though there is no blueprint for how transboundary water cooperation should be done, it is important that:• The respective riparian feel an ownership of, and a political commitment to, processes of promoting cooperation,• The benefits of water and productive outcomes of water are shared,• The respective riparian shifts focus and moves from challenges and constraints to opportunities,• Broad partnerships are built for negotiated outcomes among and within riparian countries, and• Trust and personal relations are developed among riparian delegations from countries and between domestic water user groups. This is a key ingredient to move the process forward. Presentation by: Asif Kabani and Maliha A. Kabani Email: kabani.asif@gmail.com | Skype: kabaniasif
