Abstract:     
Public participation ranging from information sharing to decision-making remains central to equitable and effective water management. Involving directly and indirectly affected individuals in decision-making facilitates trust and can establish partnerships. It also helps ensure that vital considerations are not bypassed. Providing the public with information and the opportunity to become educated about proposed projects includes a full explanation of environmental, socio-economic, and public health implications. While the challenges are formidable, there is a clear need to transition to climate resilient water policies and inclusive good governance.
