So delegates gathering in Rabat, Morocco, next month for the eighth meeting of the Water Governance Initiative, run by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), deserve acknowledgement at the very least. At the meeting, which falls in the week before the next US president is sworn into office, those hardy souls are set to discuss “raising the profile of water governance in the Global Agenda”.
