In a nutshell

Innovative and cross sector governance of water is the next step to face the multi-dimensional societal challenges that are upon us. The validation of these innovations will help with the challenge of governing to reduce the impacts of climate change, the demands of the growing population at the global scale and to ensure safe water access at the local scale.

To tackle these issues, InnWater aims at promoting social innovation to renew multi-level and cross sector water governance, associated with economic and financial mechanisms to support EU Green Deal transition while ensuring water systems sustainability.

The methodology consists in creating innovative and cross sector governance tools and methods that will be tested in 5 pilot sites. These innovations will be tailored and co-developed throughout the process, and the demonstration phase will lead to water related policy recommendations at the local, European and international scales.
