Pioneering consultations on Lebanese Water Plan

Posted: 2009-12-01

The review of the Lebanese National 2000–2009 Water Plan is being done through a ground-breaking multi-stakeholder consultation. Dialogues are leading to cooperation among Lebanese stakeholders in developing a National Integrated Water Resources Management Plan for the next ten years.

For Lebanon, inviting stakeholders to take part in such a process is a pioneering step. Two consultations have already been organised, the latest in April 2009. A draft list of recommendations Dialogue concluded in May with a Financing Strategy for the Water Supply and Sanitation Sector in Greater Cairo. The Strategy raised awareness among Egyptian stakeholders of the magnitude of the sector's financing deficit. The Strategy takes into account households' abilities to pay water tariffs and sets out options and alternative scenarios for bridging the fast growing financing gap.
