BRIDGE workshop to tackle benefit sharing in shared river basins

A BRIDGE workshop on a key aspect of hydro-diplomacy, benefit sharing, will take place during 15-16 July 2015 at the Four Wings Hotel, in Bangkok, Thailand. Selected government officials from the 3S countries (Cambodia, Lao PDR and Viet Nam) as well as representatives from NGOs will be attending.

Benefit sharing principles and approaches provide tools to achieve win-win outcomes for multiple stakeholders in a shared river basin. The method incorporates Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) and allows for better governance of shared waters.

This workshop will help participants understand benefit sharing concepts, including joint identification of benefit enhancing water management scenarios and negotiation of benefit enhancing agreements. Participants will additionally learn about the data and institutional needs for operationalising benefit sharing.
