  2. 2. Projets 2020 • Mise en œuvre du plan d’action adopté à Marrakech Promotion of water management at basin scale through structured basin organizations, with proper governance, competencies and knowledge, as well as sustainable financial mechanisms for IWRM 7 Priorities Water Information Systems Climate Change Adaptation Effective governance Interaction with other sectors and environment Strenghtening basins/cities dialogue Citizen involvment Partnerships with other networks 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 www.inbo-news.org INBO Work Programme 2019-2021
  3. 3. • Cities are « unavoidable singularities » for basin-level approaches – Increase of urban population – Extension of water issues related to ruban developement: • Flood risks • Increase of concentrated water demand • Major source of pollutions • City-basin « water dialogue » is still poorly addressed in terms of governance: – Unsufficient integration of economic costs – Unsufficient integration of planning and management scales • Urban planning/water utilities • Land use-spatial planning at basin level/urban development needs Water Information Systems Climate Change Adaptation Effective governance Interaction with other sectors and environment Strenghtening basins/cities dialogue Citizen involvment Partnerships with other networks 7 1 2 3 4 5 6
  4. 4. • Objective – Facilitate dialogue between Cities and BO – Gather experiences and good practices – Produce recommendations • Activities – INBO-IWA Handbook on city-basin dialogue (2022): establish a compendium of good practices for collaboration between Cities and BO. – INBO will also focus on supporting its members in the development of pilot projects on this theme. – Support to the creation or consolidation of networks of cities wishing to cooperate on water issues, targeting in particular midsize cities Water Information Systems Climate Change Adaptation Effective governance Interaction with other sectors and environment Strenghtening basins/cities dialogue Citizen involvment Partnerships with other networks 7 1 2 3 4 5 6
  5. 5. INBO/IWA partnership Preparation of a handbook on city-basin dialogue: official launch during World Water Forum in Dakar march 2022
  6. 6. INBO - IWA handbook on basin-city dialogue TITRE PAGE  A decision-making tool to strengthen the cities' connection and integration with river basin, to inform the actors and to feed their reflection to improve practices, based on "success stories"  Targets: political & technical decision-makers (water and sanitation services, local governments, industries, developers, intermunicipal structures, basin organizations, water management agencies) and civil society and environmental groups  Objective: promote public policy coherence and efficient water management across administrative boundaries and sectoral approaches in silos, in a functional way. This notion of participatory democracy engaged at a local level will make it possible to involve institutional actors, representatives of the civil sphere and even "ordinary" citizens. 6
  7. 7.  Urban water, sanitation and risk management will be the cornerstones of this handbook, with 4 focal areas: 1. Why reconnect urban actors to their catchment areas? What are the links, dynamics, trends? 2. How to improve planning and financing (economic and financial mechanisms, integration of Nature-based Solutions, development of Payments for Environmental Services, digitisation)? 3. Implementation (risk-based approach, allocation mechanisms for water sharing, urban development and basin management, public participation)? 4. How to evaluate the measures taken (data management, information systems, research and expertise)? 7 INBO - IWA handbook on basin-city dialogue
  8. 8.  About 30 « basin stories » completed with opinion pieces and recommendations  Summary: 1.The drivers for Action (extreme events, water quality & water scarcity) 2.The Pathways to Action (assessment, implementation & planning) 3.The Foundations for Action (opinion pieces on vision, governance, knowledge and capacities, planning tools & implementation tools) 8 INBO - IWA handbook on basin-city dialogue

Editor's Notes

  • Example of a basin story: « Green infrastructure as a conceptual framework to reconnect Mexico City metropolitan area with its lake basin”

    The problem : The metropolitan area of Mexico City is an emblematic case of city development that disconnected from the hydrological nature of the territory (gigantic water transfers to supply the city, depletion of the aquifer and extensive drainage system that artificially discharges into neighbouring areas). The negation of the historical origin of the lake coupled to the rapid expansion of the urbanized area bring as a consequence floods, water shortages, and loss of the rich biocultural heritage of the metropolitan area
    Solution & lessons learned : green and blue infrastructures represent a great area of opportunity : their bottom-up development by different sets of actors (civil society organization, academics, private companies, international actors, and more recently some local government offices) have demonstrated their potential to rehabilitate key ecosystem functions of the natural water cycle, as rainwater harvesting, retention and infiltration, groundwater recharge, depollution of wastewaters and reuse, … This wide set of NBS has the potential to recreate some of the benefits the lake basin used to provide as sufficient water resources for all, local food production opportunities, better health and well-being of the population and biodiversity support and conservation. Green infrastructure has now become an institutionalized planning tool in Mexico City and will hopefully become a regional planning framework to reconnect Mexico City metropolitan area with its lake basin.
