GWP Toolbox - B1.11 Building Partnerships
A well functioning water partnership is one of the important approaches that can be applied in a process toward integrated water resources management. Establishing such partnerships has been one of GWPÂ´s major goals and will remain a key activity during the coming years. Partnerships have been established at regional and country level and area / basin partnerships are a new focus. A partnership is often characterized as a working relationship between stakeholders with mutual and equal participation, joint interest and shared responsibilities. Processes in a partnership are typically transparent and based on an open dialogue.
