In some contexts, natural resources-related policies exist but are not implemented. When advocating for water policy reform, an important first step is to support implementation of any existing policies. Engage private sector actors to identify why policies or incentives are not yet adopted – for example, are incentive programs too complicated for companies or communities to take advantage of? Identify opportunities for standardization of indicators, develop arguments to justify any needed policy change, and demonstrate your case based on your experiences.
El Agua nos Une is a partnership led by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) with partners in national and local governments, the private sector, and civil society. The partnership is exploring the influence of water policy on corporate water stewardship. The partnership has chosen to begin by exploring existing incentive schemes, water reuse and water efficiency policies in order to demonstrate the impact of these instruments to build cases for broader engagement and provide feedback to policy makers on potential policy reforms.
