Multi-Stakeholders Platforms for Improved Water Governance
What are the workshops about?
The Global Water Partnership, in collaboation, with Cap-Net UNDP and Wagenigen University and Research are launching the “Multi-Stakeholder Platforms (MSPs) for Improved Water Governance Workshop Series” to enhance the skills of CWP leaders, RWP staff, and Cap-Net network managers on key MSP capability areas and reveal actionable insight on what makes an effective MSP for the water sector.
- To increase peer-to-peer exchanges and leverage cross-learning insights for country platform leaders on how to build stronger MSPs for increased impact;
- To harvest groundtruthing experience identifying successful strategies and lessons learned from CWPs and networks on their work in relation to gender, climate, private sector engagement, transboundary, and SDGs;
- To enhance country leaders’ sense of belonging to, and benefiting from, a global network and a global community of MSP practitioners.
Content and Format
- Keynote lecture where cutting-edge tools, concepts and strategies linked to a specific MSP capability area will be introduced by leading experts in the field;
- Story telling on real-life GWP partner experiences, showing practical wisdom gained and challenges met in practice with specific focus on the lessons learned and implications for other MSPs operating in the water sector.
