Everyone agrees today that active participation of all the public and private, collective or individual partners involved, at the side of Administrations and Government Agencies, is a condition for effective water resources management in the basins and subbasins of coastal, national or transboundary rivers, lakes and aquifers. Due to the many pressures on water resources and ecosystems and in order to adapt to the effects of climate change, it is now a strategic necessity to optimally organize this participation by drawing lessons from all ongoing or planned experiments.
This Special Session will be an opportunity to present successful experiences in participation carried out on all continents and to start a dynamic and cross sectoral dialogue with all participants in order to propose the best ways to progress.When:
