Stakeholder dialogues in IWRM


Web-based support platform Stakeholder Dialogue in Integrated Water Resource Management

Countries in the Southern-Mediterranean Region (SMR) are suffering from chronic water scarcity problems as a result of natural and human-made causes. Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) is a cross-sector policy approach that recognizes the interdependence of water resources. The implementation of IWRM requires not only a coordination between different public sector entities, but also a productive cooperation between the public sector, the private sector and civil society actors; and collaboration across borders. Such cross-sector initiatives and complex co-operation projects have become key elements for global and local change towards more sustainable development.

This creates the necessity to engage professionals in the field of IWRM in the SMR in a dialogue that extends across the borders of the Arab World. Innovative solutions in the water sector towards sustainable development need the exchange of experience and competencies and cooperation of different sectors and stakeholders. Through the dialogic approach based on the methodology developed by the Collective Leadership Institute activities of common interest can more easily be implemented because all stakeholders involved can see the “bigger picture”. Exchange of experience becomes outcome-focused, if stakeholders can see the shared goal with view to an issue with national and regional concern. 

Stakeholder Dialogue in IWRM is a web-based support platform for professionals from civil society organizations, the public and the private sector. 

The Stakeholder Dialogue in IWRM platform offers a global network for change by activating networks and fostering mutual support among professionals and empowers them to use the dialogic change methodology to make stakeholder collaboration work and face water challenges in a sustainable way.

The Dialogic Change Model - an innovative methodology

Stakeholder Dialogues successfully engage and bring together key players from civil society organizations , the public  and the private sector . They connect collective intelligence to support people-oriented public services, a stronger civil society and responsible business.

The more attention is paid to the quality of communication and human relationships, the more likely will they result in effective and sustainable co-creation. This requires a methodological knowledge consisting of process and change management experience, a dialogical approach and self-reflection methods – all all of which are combined in our Dialogic Change Model
