Urban, demographic and climate trends are increasingly exposing
cities to risks of having too little, too much and too polluted
water. Facing these challenges requires robust public policies and
sound governance frameworks to co-ordinate across multiple scales,
authorities, and policy domains. Building on a survey of 48 cities
in OECD countries and emerging economies, the report analyses key
factors affecting urban water governance, discusses trends in
allocating roles and responsibilities across levels of government,
and assesses multi-level governance gaps in urban water management.
It provides a framework for mitigating territorial and
institutional fragmentation and raising the profile of water in the
broader sustainable development agenda, focusing in particular on
the contribution of metropolitan governance, rural-urban
partnerships and stakeholder engagement.
