Flood Risk Governance - OECD Call for case studies

The OECD has developed a Checklist for decision-makers and stakeholders to assess the performance of flood risk governance arrangements at different levels, in light of the 12 OECD Principles on Water Governance adopted in June 2015.

As foreseen in the project, OECD is extending a wide call for case studies to collect practical experience and draw policy lessons from a diversity of situations:
  • Those of you willing to participate are invited to fill-in the online Checklist by 2 November 2016 with a specific case of flood risk governance in mind;
  • Alternatively, you can also complete the Checklist in Word version accessible here and return it by email to the OECD Secretariat.
