Session Abstract

This session examines how particular models, concepts and instruments in the water sector have different meanings depending on the domain in which they are being discussed and practiced and how this impacts on inclusive development and social justice. These domains of water governance may concern international and national policy and legal domains or operational domains of water provision. The interpretation and meaning of these concepts may differ between domains. This session aims to:

  • Unravel the different interpretations of inclusive development and social justice;
  • Understand the different models, concepts and instruments used by different actors and their interpretations of how these contribute to inclusive development and social justice; and
  • Examine the challenges and opportunities in promoting inclusive development and social justice in the water sector.
