Sustainable Water Use: Leadership for Positive Change

The Sustainable Water Use: Leadership for Positive Change program was part of GIWEH’s Water Series in 2009. The Water Series was a progression of symposiums, meetings, workshops and conferences aiming to bridge the gap between policy and science in water management. This particular symposium series focused on new technologies and good governance in developing countries.

The symposium was organized as a highly interactive, open exchange and wide-ranging dialogue using case studies and example-based presentations to initiate the conversation. The objectives were to identify patterns of effective leadership for positive change through success stories. GIWEH highlighted exemplary case studies as well, including effective urban water management in Switzerland and the Chung-Gye Waterway Initiative in South Korea. The symposium was attended by 85 participants, representing UN missions, international organizations, academic institutions, and the private sector.

Sustainable Water Use: Leadership for Positive Change benefitted from the support and contributions from the Canton of Geneva, United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), the Swiss Press Club, University of Birminham, UNESCO-IHE, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Green Cross International, and King Abdullaziz University.
