Following the recent adoption of OECD Principles on Water Governance, the OECD is working towards the development of Water Governance Indicators, with the objective to identify and scale up best practices, and to provide a systemic framework to evaluate the effectiveness of water-related institutions and governance arrangements.
A first step to this three-year project is taking stock of what exists through a detailed Inventory of Water Governance Indicators and Measurement Frameworks, which maps more than 60 sets of indicators, databases, guidelines, maps, and assessment frameworks that can feed discussions on measuring water governance. This Inventory was designed as an evolutionary tool to be complemented and updated on a regular basis.
Comments and suggestions are welcome by 8 September 2015, including to flag water governance indicators or databases that may have been overlooked.
