Overview of A3 Project:

Governance, Policy & Regulatory Reform


Overview of a3 project governance policy regulatory reform

  • A3: Governance, Policy & Regulatory Reform

  • Three complementary sub-projects:

  • A3.1 – Better governance for complex decision-making (Brian Head)

  • A3.2 – Better regulatory frameworks for water sensitive cities(Graeme Hodge, ArieFrieberg & Pam O’Connor)

  • A3.3 – Strategies for influencing the political dynamics of decision-making (John Thwaites & Jim Walter)


Overview of a3 project governance policy regulatory reform

  • A3: Governance, Policy & Regulatory Reform

  • Assessment of system innovation approaches and development of best-practice governance models for systems at state, regional and local scales

  • Review and assessment reports relating to current regulatory frameworks and recommendations for their improvement

  • A new model for risk assessment and risk diversification for the water sector

  • Methods for better reconciling scientific findings, expert opinion, policy making imperatives and community concerns entailing societal change – policy learning circles

  • Guidance on how to influence the political dynamics of decision-making and policy programs

  • A3: Governance, Policy & Regulatory Reform

  • A3.1 – Better governance for complex decision-making

  • A3.2 – Better regulatory frameworks for water sensitive cities

  • A3.3 – Strategies for influencing the political dynamics of decision-making


A3 1 better governance

A3.1 Better Governance

We therefore need to:

  • Better understand why the current institutional processes and standard governance approaches have proved unable to deliver solutions for the complex multi-level innovations required.

  • Better understand the available international approaches that encourage innovation while protecting well-being

  • Better understand the evidence base requiredto support decision-making for system innovation.

  • Provide these new understandings and insights for the consideration of local, state and national decision-makers.


A3 2 better regulatory frameworks

A3.2 Better Regulatory Frameworks

This tackles some more specific problems in regulatory governance for developing water sensitive cities:

  • Regulatory frameworks were not designed to facilitate WSUD and alternative water sources

  • The regulatory context for WSUD is complex, comprising numerous regulatory instruments and different governance/institutional frameworks, which may not always work towards consistent objectives

  • Most frameworks are based on a centralised rather than a decentralised model

  • A3.3: Strategies for influencing the political dynamics of decision-making

Assess effective policy engagement strategies for scientists and practitioners

Design capacity building strategies for improving evidence based decision-making in contested knowledge situations

Develop methods of reconciling scientific findings, expert opinion, policy imperatives and community concerns


The knowledge gap

The knowledge gap

We need to bridge knowledge gap concerning:

  • how political leaders and policy makers make the decisions that affect the implementation of water sensitive cities;

  • how the advice and opinions of scientists, experts, practitioners and the community are considered and utilised by key decision makers; and

  • how scientists, experts and practitioners can successfully participate in policy processes and influence community opinion, political leaders and decision makers to advance water sensitive city policies.
