Twin2Go at the 9th Global Water Partnership Southern Africa Consulting Partners Meeting

The fourth in the series of Twin2Go policy workshops will take place on 14 September at the 9th Global Water Partnership (GWP) Southern Africa Consulting Partners Meeting, which will be held in Gauteng, South Africa. The meeting will bring together delegates of Country Water Partnerships from Southern Africa as well as representatives from river basin organisations and regional GWP programmes.

The Twin2Go sessions will focus on the attributes of governance systems that increase performance of river basin management, especially within the context of climate change. More specifically, Twin2Go recommendations on transfer and implementation of good practices and innovative tools in river basin management will be shared and discussed.

Annika Kramer from adelphi research in Germany will start the session with a presentation on methods and results of the Twin2Go analysis of governance systems in 29 basins around the world. In a subsequent panel discussion, representatives from river basin organisations, GWP, national governments and academia will provide feedback on the results presented and engage in an open discussion with the audience.

After lunch, a presentation on the Twin2Go Best Practice Guidelines will be held by Palle Lindgaard-Jorgensen from DHI Denmark, followed by an interactive working group session. Workshop participants will reflect on how good practices can be adapted to local contexts, how coordination in implementing new practices can be improved, and what capacities need to be developed to support implementation of adaptive water government good practices. The working groups’ rapporteurs will share the results with the plenary and initiate a facilitated discussion with the audience.
