  3. 3. IWRM IN SEA <ul><li>vast region with complete diversity in terms of </li></ul><ul><ul><li>geographical character </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ethnical groups </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>religion </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>political and economic systems, and ideology. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>common institutional issues generally related to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>inter-agency coordination </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>decentralization of authority </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>functional gaps and overlaps </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>organizational effectiveness </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>and inefficiency </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Common demand for institutional reform : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>apex body </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>reorganization of </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>government </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>agencies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>strong field level </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>WRM organization </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- river basin </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>organization, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>etc. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. STRATEGY OUTLINE <ul><ul><li>Strategy 2009 - 2013 includes plans to support WRM institutional reform </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>regional level : workshops for dissemination of information and experience on the building up of institutional reform </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>which will facilitate extension of learning </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>country level : support for accelerating institutional reform processes at all governance levels, i.e. central, provincial and local/ district/river basin level </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>major activities are on providing platforms for multi-sectoral dialogues with different entry points relative to burning issues. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 5. WHAT WE ARE DOING <ul><li>Limited activities are being conducted under the existing GWP core budget </li></ul><ul><li>GWP SEA facilitated the hosting of a Regional workshop on river basin organisation and management by Indonesia Water Partnership, Indonesian Ministry of Public Works and NARBO. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>has further informed SEA on possible river basin institutional areas of focus for the 2010 work plan in cooperation with NARBO. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. COUNTRY LEVEL ACTIVITIES CWPs are preparing similar cooperation and joint efforts , some of them are already underway, e.g. Thailand.
  7. 7. OTHER IWRM PLAYERS <ul><li>Some governments are providing much amounts of own budget to implement similar IWRM based institutional reform activities in their own programs without GWP-SEA involvement - a good sign of increasing IWRM awareness in government agencies </li></ul><ul><li>Other international organizations and funding agencies have been adopting IWRM concept in driving their water resources projects and flowing much greater amounts of budget to implement institutional reform programs directly to governments </li></ul>
  8. 8. WHAT TO DO NEXT <ul><li>The challenge for GWP SEA is to strategically position itself to work with governments, regional (ADB and ASEAN) and international organisations on these programmes, using its multi stakeholder platform. </li></ul><ul><li>GWP SEA also needs to work on clearly identifying the type of technical support it requires and which activities, and to determine who should provide it. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>There is abundance of expertise in the region but it needs to be tapped. </li></ul></ul>
