In cooperation with network partners and resource persons in the countries concerned, we help to identify the focus and expected outcomes of water and climate dialogue in specific contexts. We provide expertise and share knowledge e.g. in terms of water governance principles, water and land management, risk management, as well as strategies to build climate resilience. By definition, dialogues help to combine different perspectives, and typically build on local as well as external knowledge, experience and insights. As such, these are seen as an efficient way to learn and develop a common vision on future and build capacity for collective action to find ways out of challenging situations combining short, medium and long term outlooks.
