Local and Community-Based Water Governance
June 23 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
This roundtable is organized by the Forum on Water Law and Governance.
Date: June 23, 2022
Time: 11:30 a.m. to 13:00 p.m. EDT
Location: Zoom webinar
Short description: Local and community stakeholders play a key role in the development and implementation of water governance. They are at the base of a complex process and the leading actors on the field. However, their resources are often limited, and their roles remain little discussed.
With a focus on social science and law, this event will explore the diversity of issues, challenges, and dynamics of local water governance. More specifically, this roundtable will focus on water stakeholders at the local and community level and will propose a discussion between actors from the Ottawa watershed.
This bilingual and multidisciplinary roundtable is organized by the University of Ottawa’s Forum on Water Law and Governance. This roundtable is supported by the Centre for Environmental Law and Global Sustainability, the Public Law Centre, the Centre on Governance, and the Alex Trebek Forum for Dialogue.
Event outcomes: Based on the discussions held by the speakers during the roundtable, we wish to prepare a short synthesis report outlining the needs of the stakeholders when it comes to local and community-based water governance. In addition to documenting the roundtable, this report will be directly intended for decision-makers and will have the ambition to feed the debates in terms of public policies.
