Welcome to the Water Economics, Policy and Governance Network's (WEPGN) The Big Questions Wiki!

This purpose of this wiki is to provide a platform for members of the Water Economics, Policy and Governance Network (WEPGN) to build on conversations around key questions that Network seeks to address, as well as to share information on research progress in the lead up to the Network’s 2014 AGM.

The following research summaries have been posted for members to learn about the research their colleagues are undertaking.

[edit] Afternoon Discussion: Background material for WEPGN Phase II Planning and HQP KM Micro-financing program

Hi, folks:

The two documents that are posted in this section serve two different purposes. The HQP microfinancing plan has been approved by the Board and we are 'rolling out' the announcement at the AGM. Thus, this is for your (and your HQPs) information.

On the other hand, the Phase 2 planning document has not been approved by the Board. We are seeking your input on a variety of issues outlined in the document. We will revise the document after the AGM and then take it to Board for approval.
