Democratizing Water Governance
The democratization of water governance is a key overall objective of the M-POWER network. In doing so, we are working closely with Phase 2 of the Challenge Program on Water and Food, which aims to ‘increase the benefits derived from hydropower, and to contribute towards minimising negative impacts’.
M-POWER has responsibility for a project focusing on ways in which benefits from dams can be improved across the Mekong Basin by concentrating on how dams are managed and operated at a basin-wide scale. Its emphasis therefore is about institutional and managerial innovation in this sector. This ‘Water Governance’ project is one of six integrated projects for the Mekong.
