The OECD Water Governance Initiative is an international multi-stakeholder network of members from the public, private and non-for-profit sectors gathering twice a year to share good practices in support of better governance in the water sector. It provides a multi-stakeholder technical platform to share knowledge, experience and best practices on water governance across levels of government. It also aims to advise governments in taking the needed steps for effective water reforms through peer-to-peer dialogue and stakeholder engagement across public, private and non-profit sectors. In addition, it provides a consultation mechanism to raise the profile of governance in the Global Water Agenda (Sustainable Development Goals, World Water Forum, Habitat III, COP etc.) and support the implementation of the OECD Principles on Water Governance in interested member and non-member countries, basins and cities by scaling up best practices and developing indicators. The inventory gathers more than 100 governance tools (water and non-water specific) related stakeholder engagement; performance & governance of water supply and sanitation; basin governance; and integrity & transparency and presents over 60 indicators, databases and maps and assessment tools on measuring water governance.
