This Background Paper, titled “Social Equity and Integrated Water Resources Management”, was written by Humberto Peña, GWP Technical Committee member and former National Director of Water Resources in Chile (1994–2006).

In this paper, he provides an analytical framework that policy makers and water professionals can use to bring greater clarity to the issue of social equity in their local context. This paper is meant to support better policy-making and encourage greater reflection and discussion on social equity in the water sector and beyond.

The paper explores the concepts that inform the debate on water and social equity and looks at equity in the context of processes, in particular the component of procedural justice in policy and water-related services.
