CD Symposium
Developing Capacity from Rio to Reality: Who's Taking the Lead?

Assessment of Capacity Development Progress in IWRM

This session considers progress with capacity development to support the implementation of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM).

Covering different national contexts at different scales, the session spans from river basin organisations (unpacking the interaction and internal dynamic between two groups on the ‘knowledge side’ and ‘policy side’ in a Transboundary river basin organisation) to considering the willingness and ability of the public to participate in water management. At a national level, it explores how Indonesia moved from importing capacity for infrastructure development to a much improved situation nowadays. Drawing on lessons emerging from the different empirical case studies and from the discussion with the audience , the session aims to generate insights and best practices for IWRM-focused capacity development.
