Prof. Margreet Zwarteven was the lead resource person for the training. The training covered numerous aspects of water governance, including the trans-boundary water challenges, Integrated Water Management, Public Policy and Politics of Climate Adaptation, and other key topics. Prof Zwarteveen said that climate change and other associated global environmental issues had manifested the fact that all old knowledge, policies and mechanisms had gone outdated and insufficient to cope with the induced matter of water scarcity. Thus there is a dire need to build mechanisms and understanding of the water governance and management concepts in an integrated manner.
