Publication: Lessons for Managing Lake Basins : Measuring Good Governance
Lakes and reservoirs play a central role in integrated water resources management. Yet lake and reservoir basins have not received sufficient attention in global water policy discussion, even though lakes are essential to the lives of much of the world's population, and provide habitat for aquatic life. An analysis of experiences and lessons learned from 28 lakes around the world sought to identify practical lessons learned from management of lake basins, create new knowledge on lake basin management, fill an important gap in knowledge of lake basin management in developing countries, and derive lessons from internationally funded projects. The main focus of this note is to summarize the monitoring and evaluation indicators of good governance in lake basin management that were developed.
