What is
-

or was to date
-

WaterWiki ?


UNDP’s
Knowledge exchange and on
-
line
collaboration platform

for water practitioners

Alternative to official UNDP / project sites

A continuously growing knowledge base that


improves with each individual user
-
contribution


allows sharing and discussing of “true knowledge”
(success, failures, lessons,


is owned by the community

What it is
not ?


A “normal website”


Under responsibility or control of UNDP


A pure database or “Content Management System”

E&E CoP

Background: The Pre
-
History of
WaterWiki

WaterWiki emerged from the real
NEED


to systematically map & document projects, reports &
key documents, organizations, “who
-
is
-
who and does
what”,


to codify UNDP
-
relevant “knowledge on water”


for an on
-
line collaboration workspace

APPROACH

chosen


Web
-
based (instead of “storing it on C:
-
drive”)


Interactive (instead of “central delivery”)


Real
-
time (instead of “thanks, please wait for
publication”)


Possibility for joint collaboration on knowledge
products


“Something like
Wikipedia
, decentralized, that that
works like a “Potluck
-
cooking party” rather than a
restaurant visit”

E&E CoP

The global “Wiki
-
experiment”

Wikipedia



started “small and simple”;


grew in short time to one of the most important on
-
line
resources.



(The humble vision: “
capturing the worlds
knowledge
”…)

Practice proofs
: Approach and tool conducive
to


encourage hundred
-
thousands to share their
individual knowledge


Despite skepticism from many deliver exponentially
increasing knowledge resources of use to hundreds
of millions of users

E&E CoP

meeting 2008 / WATER, 14 Oct 2008

Jürg Staudenmann, UNDP BRC

7

The “Wiki
-
idea”


Underlying principles

Decentralized contributions & content
responsibility (democratic + self
-
responsibility +
peer control)

Limited format or structure prescribed (
let it grow
!
)

“Tags” and hyperlinks as backbone (instead of
folders & hierarchy)

Allow/promote ANY knowledge in ANY format,
files, pics, etc.

But restrain opinions / viewpoints (use other fora
for that)

Coaching & support, rather than supervision and
control

So, how does WaterWiki work ?


Like
Wikipedia




On
-
line collection of info, knowledge, files, links …


Entire content is free for use, editing, complementation, linking


Every change is tracked to revert previous versions if needed

… * BUT:




While entire content is visible to anyone,
only registered &
logged
-
in users
can create new or edit existing pages/articles,
upload files, insert links, pics, videos (YouTube), rate or discuss
contributions ...

What about quality control?



Self
-
responsibility
: Each contributor is attributed to his/her
contributions


Peer
-
control
: users mutually monitor, comment and directly edit
each others contributions


Facilitation
: “Knowledge farmers” assist users, guide or
selectively complement contributions, to maximize
usability/benefit


Red
-
button
: If necessary, users can be blocked and every
change undone

Evolution

of
WaterWiki

Started “bottom
-
up” in Aug 2005:



zero budget (but 100% commitment + 2 interns)

Aug 05


Mar 06 (1/2 year):


From 0 to

600

visitor/day


Some 200 pages

(incl. 32 “country
-
pages”,

25 projects, 50 reports,

40 practitioners, …)

Mid 2008:


Almost 2,000 pages + 850 uploaded files


(incl. 101 projects, 287 reports, 192 practitioners & 58 contacts,
97 thematic articles, 39 experience write
-
ups / case
-
studies, 127
organizations & networks, 213 definitions/concepts, …)

Client surveys 2007

User feedback:


WaterWiki has greatly improved access to information
and knowledge on water in the region (
“Our own little
Britannica“
)


Used by practitioners & experts as (a)
info
-
base
, (b)
learning resource

(!), and (c) “
to stay connected

to
other practitioners”


People like the “look and feel” of WaterWiki
(recognition effect due to Wikipedia)


High flexibility in terms of content, structure,
presentation, continued change & development

An easy
-
to
-
use platform,
broad enough

to cover
all relevant information sources, yet
focused &
specific enough

to remain relevant, selective,
“to
-
the
-
point” and of real practical use

WaterWiki in 2008:

At the turning
point

!


3 years piloting experience, success,
recognition:


We’re
on the right track
. That’s how knowledge
management & experience exchange can work

There’s a
confirmed need

for “a WaterWiki”
(user reviews; peer
-
discussions; consultations)

It’s time to “
spread the wings and fly
”:


(i) scale
-
up
: globalize within UNDP


and beyond


(ii) open up
: broaden institutionally


(ii) professionalize
: define (& occupy) niche, review
structure, upgrade functionalities, enrich basic content


(iii) possibly “re
-
/de
-
brand”
: (no visible (UN
-
) brand
also
l
egally a “slim solution”)

BUT KEEP THE THEMATIC FOCUS
: Water (&
Sanitation)

”Mesh
-
up” solutions (link with e
-
mail groups, blogs, social
networks (facebook / LinkedIn/…?), SKYPE, news or meta
-
services, etc.)

Improve
structure, navigation, search


Additional “exploring mechanisms” (e.g. portals, virtual toolboxes)


Folksonomy (tag
-
clouds), keyword
-
automated listings, etc.


“Top content” (What’s new? | popular? | top
-
rated | Who’s active
…)

HRBA to Water Governance

Scope / outline:

Why applying a HRBA to Water Governance ?


WSS matters (for Human Development) …


… but Water Governance is the key !

What means taking a
Human Rights
-
based
Approach (HRBA)

Access to Water Supply & Sanitation
matters !

Human Development strongly linked to
WSS

“The s
uccessfully tackling of the WSS crises could trigger
the next leap forward in human development!“ (UNDP
HDR 2006)

E&E CoP

meeting 2008 / WATER, 14 Oct 2008

Jürg Staudenmann, UNDP BRC

31

Why a HRBA to Water Governance ?

Fact


1.1 billion people without water, 2.6 billion without sanitation


WSS a key driver to achieve the MDGs (
child mortality / maternal
health; poverty & food security; healthy work force; education …
)

The growing “Water Crisis” is foremost a problem of
Water
Governance
, not of lacking water resources


A crisis of the
poor and marginalized
(incl. ethnic, gender or
rural
-
urban disparities)


Low political commitment to
sanitation and hygiene


Climate Change

will add more complexity & additional burden

The way forward


Focus on support to countries to develop national strategies &
plans towards
integrated water resources management

(IWRM)


Promote international
aid & financing



But also
make water a human right


and mean it !

(UNDP HDR 2006)

based
Approach)?

E&E CoP

meeting 2008 / WATER, 14 Oct 2008

Jürg Staudenmann, UNDP BRC

33

Applying a HRBA to “Water Governance”:

What it may imply

Prioritizing

human and/or household
allocation/consumption over all other uses
(especially in crisis situations)

Ensuring & guaranteeing

allocation of a
minimum volume of (affordable) drinking water
for everyone

Providing (legal)
instruments
, e.g. for
inhabitants to


Claim their water rights


Get access to info and political decisions

BUT: Choosing an
integrated approach
to
Water Resources management (e.g. IWRM)


not focusing on WSS only (“
pipes and pumps”
)


To ensure
sustainability

!



E&E CoP

meeting 2008 / WATER, 14 Oct 2008

Jürg Staudenmann, UNDP BRC

34

Linking HRBA to “Water Governance”

Opportunities

Promoting (increased) state
budget allocations towards
WSS

Possibility to hold state
accountable / responsible for


prioritizing & implementing
WSS


Participatory, non
-
discriminatory, inclusive
approach

“Sensible prioritization” while
balancing between different
water users (incl. the natural
environment!)

Challenges

Other user groups (industry,
energy sector, agricultural
industry…) often have stronger
influence (financially,
politically, socially)

Finding the right balance
between WSS and other

development priorities
” like


food security (irrigation /
agriculture),


livelihoods (production /
industry),

energy (e.g. hydropower for
heating),


environment

The
UNECE Protocol on Water and Health:


A unique opportunity for Europe & CIS

“Parties shall … take all appropriate measures
for … ensuring: (a)
adequate supplies of
wholesome drinking water
…; (b)
adequate
sanitation
...”

“… principles and approaches: …
equitable
access to water
,
adequate in terms of both
quantity and of quality
, should be provided for
all

members of the population,
especially those
who suffer a disadvantage or social
exclusion
.”

Mobilize partnerships and funds for projects and
(mainstreamed) interventions

Approach:


Phase 1:
Analyze specific country situation, gaps
and opportunities (
BRC
)


Phase 2:
Verify needs with stakeholders; set
priorities; develop concrete projects (
CO with BRC
support
)


Phase 3: Launch and implement

4 Thematic “Areas of Concern”

1.
Accessibility


Infrastructure


Physical

accessibility, primary focus on
quality of the (WSS)
services


Dev. priority: provide access to poor, marginalised and vulnerable
groups


2.
Affordability


Water Pricing




Economic accessibility
, water tariff system that provides
standard volume of water
to everyone

at
affordable prices

(or
free if necessary)


Special consideration to poor, marginalised and vulnerable
groups

3.
Allocation & Quality


Water Resources Management


Supplied water needs to be
safe

and
suitable
for all different
uses


Balance among competing needs

(incl. natural environment)
while prioritizing human consumption

4.
Transboundary Cooperation



Joint management of
the resource


Adequate
cooperation

between neighbour countries /
communities sharing water resource/body (at national, basin or
local level)
