Multinational environmental agreements (MEAs) governing water resources and water-related ecosystem management and climate change can support the embedding of integrated water resources management in the rules of law – through national and local legislation.
Effective, efficient and transparent water resources governance is required that includes improved collaboration and
coordination between governments, technical institutions, non- governmental organizations and civil society towards improved monitoring and data quality, culminating in better hydrological and hydrogeological services, as discussed in the recent WMO conference held in May 2018 (World Meteorological Organization 2018).
