Linkedin Debate: 'What makes managing water in deltas different?'
Managing the world’s deltas: Unique systems, unique challenges
The Global Water Partnership (GWP) has started a thinking process on water management and governance in deltas. We sincerely welcome you to participate actively in this process, which is being implemented jointly by GWP and the Delta Alliance.
The results of this consultation will be a GWP - Delta Alliance document on delta policies and best practices towards the end of 2012, to feed into the next Global Water Partnership Strategy. We hope to support increased cooperation worldwide between those involved in the management and governance of deltas, and to strengthen the science-policy interface. The objective is also to develop a joint GWP – Delta Alliance delta agenda for the coming phase.
We invite your active involvement in this e-consultation which will run until the end of August 2012. The outcome will be presented in a workshop during the GWP Consultative Partners meeting on 26 August 2012, and further elaborated on in a seminar/high level panel session on deltas during the Stockholm World Water Week on 29 August 2012.
