The effectiveness of water resources management requires a legislative framework established at the country level which sets the principles of water resources management and the rules to be applied at all levels: basin, sub-basin, region or urban district.
There is a necessity to organize and put in place a system entrusted with the overall mission to ensure « water law enforcement », or in other words to control and monitor compliance to these regulations. Indeed, experience shows that progress in water management as well as in the (qualitative, quantitative and ecological) status of water resources depend on the existence and proper functioning of such a system.
How should a water law enforcement system be organized? Based on the experience and know-how of certain countries, what fundamental recommendations can be drawn in order to achieve the effectiveness of controls and to materialize water law enforcement in the field?
Echoing World Water Day (22 March), the theme of which this year is "valuing water", INBO organizes this series of two webinar sessions. The objective is to present the answers provided by States from the four corners of the world.
This webinar series will feed into the preparation of a methodological and practical handbook on the organization of water law enforcement, or “Water police”. The handbook, produced by INBO, will be published on the occasion of the World Water Forum in March 2022.
