This suggestion is mainly an institutional solution, but it expected to develop partners technical and scientific expertise as well.
It consists in promoting,establishing, supporting or strengthening twinning initiatives in order to boost exchange of good practices and lessons learned in water management. This should gradually lead to an improvement of water governance world wide, through concrete achievements in IWRM.

This solution consists in the twinning of institutions which haven’t reach the same level of IWRM implementation. The Murrumbidgee River Basin HELP Committee (Australia) is for instance more advanced than the Davao River Basins HELP Network in this respect. Hence, the later can find an interest in learning from the experiences and good practices of the former. This explains why a twinning agreement have been concluded between the two parties.
