Water Governance in OECD Countries

A Multi-level Approach

image of Water Governance in OECD Countries

This report addresses multilevel governance challenges in water policy implementation and identifies good practices for coordinating water policy across ministries, between levels of government, and across local actors at subnational level. Based on a methodological framework, it assesses the main “coordination gaps” in terms of policymaking, financing, information, accountability, objectives and capacity building, and provides a platform of existing governance mechanisms to bridge them. Based on an extensive survey on water governance the report provides a comprehensive institutional mapping of roles and responsibilities in water policy-making at national/subnational level in 17 OECD countries. It concludes on preliminary multilevel governance guidelines for integrated water policy.

This chapter summarises the main findings of the report regarding: i) the institutional mapping of roles and responsibilities; ii) key multi-level governance challenges in water policy design and implementation; and iii) common governance instruments to manage the interdependence between levels of government and build capacity. It draws the lessons from OECD experience in the governance of water policy and suggests preliminary guidelines intended as a tool for policy makers to diagnose and respond to multi-level governance challenges in water policy.
