What is water diplomacy?

IHE Delft defines water diplomacy as the facilitation of cooperation between states on shared water resources and the prevention and resolution of water related conflicts among them. In this understanding, water diplomacy is mostly about the process of establishing joint water governance arrangements to realize equitable and sustainable outcomes.

 

Successful water diplomacy has the potential to foster cooperation, also beyond the water sector, thus
contributing to regional security and stability.

IHE Delft’s water diplomacy activities are targeting knowledge sharing & science-policy dialogue, advancement of educational excellence, as well as research & knowledge production.
