Public participation and water resources management: where do we stand in international law?

13 December 2013

Geneva, Switzerland

The conference was co-organized jointly by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the Platform for International Water Law of the University of Geneva, with the financial support of the Swiss National Science Foundation.

The conference provided an opportunity to analyse current trends and innovative thinking for the involvement of non-state actors in the management of freshwater resources. It also provided a platform to discuss good practices to ensure public participation in decision-making for freshwater resources management and access to justice.
