Abstract
The water situation in many countries is very complicated, involving various aspects and dimensions (quality, quantity, sources, uses, ecosystems). This necessitates a well coordinated set of policies. This is not an easy task and, indeed, many countries do still face water problems similar to what they have faced many years ago. A well designed water policy is a multi-facet concerted intervention that could be specific to a given set of political, physical and socio-economic conditions. As opposed to science, there is no one formula that solves water problems. A great deal of progress can be achieved by sharing experience of policy formulation and implementation by experienced experts. Therefore, having a set of documented country-level contemporary issues and analyses is a unique opportunity to share with other interested parties. The proposed session: "Issues in Water Resource Policy: Learning from Int’l Experience" will bring high-level policy makers and policy analysts from various countries who are involved in setting policies and documenting policy implementation experience in their countries, to share knowledge regarding some specific policy issues that are featured in almost any country in the world and have been addressed differently by each country. Each set of policy issues in the participating countries has been documented recently (in a country level book in the series ‘Issues in Water Resource Policy’) by Resources for the Future Press and will be on display in the session.
