IMDEA is one of the 100+ members of the OECD GWI (the most relevant policy forum on water governance worldwide with public, private and civil society stakeholders). The GWI shares knowledge and good practices on water governance, advice governments in water reforms implementation and supports the OECD Principles on water governance.
IMDEA participates twice a year in the meetings of the GWI to share good practices supporting better governance in the water sector at global scale. In 2018, IMDEA also provided expertise within the framework Country-Specific Policy Dialogues to the Governments of Argentina and Peru.
The Policy Dialogues assess multi-level governance and issues identified by the governments (i.e. water abstraction charges in Brazil, economic regulation of water and sanitation services in Argentina and Peru or the use of economic policy instruments in Peru).
