Stockholm World Water Week 2017: Actions to reduce water-related conflict risks
Published: 4 September 2017
Water shortage hurdles
The good news is that it may be possible to take actions to reduce these risks, although various hurdles may still need to be overcome. This was the conclusion of a group of international experts who participated in our session. Actions can be top-down or bottom up, preventive or responsive, and one action is not necessarily better than another. Different actions are the mandate or responsibility of a various actors, who in turn may require specific information to take decisions on these interventions. See the Dutch Water Sector news item.
