The OECD Initiative on Water Governance is intended as a multi-stakeholder network and policy platform to advance on the global water governance agenda, and bridge the gap between two World Water Fora (by supporting users-oriented and needs-driven implementation of the 6th WWF solutions and commitments on water governance through the sharing of good practices and experiences across countries and institution). This Initiative will encompass the establishment of a Policy Forum with members meeting twice a year, the creation of an International Observatory on good water governance practices, and a Web Portal aimed at stimulating discussions across a wide range of public, private and not-for-profit actors at different levels, within and outside the water community. <br /><br />Strategic orientations will be defined by the 6th WWF Good Governance Core Group, in which UNESCO-IHP is included; the activities will be sustained through thematic and regional working groups.
