Water governance

“Managing and securing access to water for all is not only a question of money but equally a matter of good governance” (OECD water governance programme). The tendency in the past has however been to focus on building infrastructure, instead of ensuring that the available water is delivered efficiently and equitably. Water governance is one of the most significant aspects of water management which leads to sustainable development of water resources and services.

CWAS in partnership with Stockholm International Water Institute, Sweden and National Institute of Urban Affairs, India has formed the WASH Governance Hub. The hub  focuses on a) To implement the performance assessment system, b)To provide technical support to state and local governments, c) To strengthen the institutional arrangement by building the capacity of local governments and other stakeholders and d)To develop a knowledge network and a repository for research and tools related to water governance
