Reducing Water Insecurity through Stakeholder Participation in River Basin Management in the Asia-Pacific

This employed a combination of human response options (scientific, engineering, institutional, financial, social, economic) and partnerships (domestic and transboundary), as a powerful tool in good water governance and a precondition for effective policy process towards sustainable development. This project was highlighted in the APN’s Third Strategic Phase (3SP) Evaluation Report because of the following: Engaged stakeholders from the beginning of the project activities, leading to a conceptual framework incorporating stakeholders from private sector, public and governments on river basin management; Project activities went beyond the initial objectives and produced tangible outputs for science, policy, private sector and the public; Impacted both research and stakeholder communities through peer-reviewed publications and stakeholder dialogues; and Good example of multi- and trans-disciplinary approaches to global change research.
