In September 2011, through the 2030 Water Resources Group, CEEW submitted a report to the Planning Commission of India with the purpose of finding the evidentiary basis for proposing reforms in the water sector and serving as an input into the deliberations for the 12th Five Year Plan.
The 2030 WRG requested the Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) to develop a framework for effective collaborative action in water management at the (sub) river basin level. This led to a contribution to the national and global dialogue about shared water risks and multi-stakeholder water stewardship. Evidence shows that such collaborative efforts are not yet common practice, not yet in India, but also not elsewhere. This Collective Action study determines success and failure factors and effective tools or mechanisms to facilitate multi-stakeholder engagement processes in India based on the identified global and domestic case studies.
The 2030 Water Resources Group (2030 WRG) is a public, private, civil society partnership that supports country-level collaboration designed to unite diverse groups with a common interest in the sustainable management of water resources.
