OECD Water Governance Initiative Survey

What do you look for when searching for best practices and case studies on water governance?

The OECD Water Governance Initiative is developing a database with local, basin, national and international practices to reach the standards behind the OECD Principles on Water Governance. In doing so, it strives i) not to duplicate what already exists; ii) to be relevant to end users from a policy, decision-making and practitioner perspective; and iii) to be sufficiently pragmatic and accessible to serve the purpose at the least cost. For these reasons, they want to hear from you!

OECD invites you to fill in a short online survey of 10 questions that should take no more than 10 minutes of your time by 9 November 2016.

The survey seeks to scope the expectations and needs of our partner institutions, networks and stakeholders when searching for water governance practices. The results will shape the process (of collecting practices), the content (of practices) and the final output (possible online format). Read More...

SURVEY | What are the information needs of engineers?

AGWA is seeking feedback from the practicing engineers within our network!

You are being invited to participate in a research study titled “Lifelong Learning for Engineers in Practice.” This study is being done by Mary DeJong and Wendy Holliday from Northern Arizona University.

The purpose of this research study is to investigate the information needs and practices of professional engineers. Results will be used to help determine the most valuable resources for current and future engineering students at NAU and other universities nationwide. The researchers want to learn more about the information sources engineers use in their practice and which they find most valuable; how engineers locate information sources; and barriers to access to information.

Survey on Integrating Gender Considerations into Climate Change Adaptation in the Agriculture Sector

The Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture is currently undertaking a study to better understand the ways in which institutions are integrating gender-sensitive approaches to climate change adaptation in the agricultural sector in Latin America. The survey, implemented together with IFPRI and CCAFS, is part of the European Commission funded project IICA-EUROCLIMA, "Sustainable agriculture, Food Security, and Climate Change in Latin America", which seeks to strengthen capacity to integrate climate change adaptation and mitigation into regional and national public policy.
