New Frontiers in Water Governance

The session will challenge the boundaries of our prevalent models of water governance by exploring different approaches, practices and ways of thinking. Speakers will bring indigenous, rights-of-rivers, more-than-human and decolonial perspectives on and approaches to water governance, with a focus on practical applications and transferability.

Many of our time’s greatest challenges are linked to water. Climate change is primarily and increasingly felt through floods, droughts, and water contamination – affecting all beings in every part of the globe. Current governance arrangements often are no longer able to match the complexity and uncertainty of the challenges we face. As the world is not on track to achieve SDG6, increasingly calls are made to change the frameworks that guide our way of thinking about and governing water.

Location: Room C4, Waterfront Congress Centre and online
