SHARED WATER MANAGEMENT SHOULD BE STRENGTHENED WITH A CONTINUOUS ARTICULATION IN THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE PUBLIC, PRIVATE AND CIVIL SOCIETY
Comprehensive and effective management of water resources in a shared and integrated manner is only feasible if the result is the implementation of public policies related to the sector, aimed at improving the citizen’s living conditions.
For this water management in any region of the world to point to advances in water management and governance policies, it is necessary to strengthen the articulation between the public and private sectors with the participation of civil society actors.
This articulation in particular, in a river basin, is strengthened if it happens within the scope of a Basin Organization, in the case of Brazil, of the River Basin Committees.
Thus, with the dialogue taking place with all public, private and civil society actors within these collegiate bodies implemented by Law, water management by the citizen becomes possible as participatory, integrated and shared and results in comprehensive actions that benefit the river basin community as a whole.
