Description

Implementation of the National Water Plan

Commitment start and end date: September 2018 to December 2019.
Institution or actor responsible for the implementation: the Ministry of Housing, Land
Management and Environment (MVOTMA) – the National Directorate of Waters (DINAGUA)
and the Presidency of the Republic - E-Government and Information Society Agency
(AGESIC)
Existing commitment
Theme: Environment – Water – Climate change
Commitment description
What is the commitment? To collectively create the regional basin plans foreseen
in the “National Water Plan”.
To strengthen existing participatory spaces through the
incorporation of digital tools.
To promote the inclusion of the topic of water in the
various educational spaces for the development of a
new water culture.
What is the problem that the
commitment will address?
In order to formulate integrated water resources
management plans with political, social and
environmental sustainability, a participatory process
involving all the actors linked to the basin is needed.
For this, it is essential to ensure information and tools
for communication and the development of a common
language among the participating actors, and to
promote water education at all levels.
There is a demand from different civil society actors for
data in open formats linked to the water resources of
Uruguay, which has been presented in different
participatory spaces.
In this sense, it is necessary to make further progress
in facilitating access to data related to the use of water
and the territory of the different basins of Uruguay, and
hydrological data of the whole country.
How will the commitment contribute to
solving the problem?
This commitment contributes to the national strategy
established in the National Water Plan, particularly with
the development of the following programs of the Plan:
6 - Integrated Water Resources Management Plans, 9
- Institutional strengthening and coordination and 10 –
Water education, communication, research and
capacity building.
The development of a communication strategy with
technological tools, making information available and
the application of participatory methodologies will allow
the actors linked to the respective basins to collaborate
with the formulation of the plans and the undertaking of
commitments by bringing a diversity of concerns,
perspectives and capacities.
Why is it relevant to OGP values? The implementation of the National Water Plan is a
strong commitment to the participation of the
population in the planning, management and control of
water resources. It contributes directly to the
transparency of the processes involved and of the
information related to watersheds and waters.
For these reasons, the plan is of relevance for
transparency and public participation. In addition, the
Plan provides for regular accountability for progress.
Additional Information
The National Water Plan (PNA) works within the National Water Policy Act (Law No.18 610),
which regulates article 47 of the Constitution of the Republic. The plan contributes directly to
the National Environmental Plan (in consultation process), to the National Climate Change
Policy, and to the National Biodiversity Strategy.
Advancing the implementation of integrated water management of national and transboundary
basins and aquifers, as well as continuing with the implementation of the plans and programs
of the National Water Plan, contributes to the Sustainable Development Goals and particularly
to Goal 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation). In the same sense, the enhancement of spaces for
participation within the development of the National Water Plan contributes to the fulfillment of
the SDGs.
Objectives and/or milestones
Description of objectives and/or milestones
Start date End date
To formulate at least 5 integrated water resource management
plans through a participatory process strengthening the formal
participatory spaces (regional councils of water resources) and
developing other opportunities for citizen participation,
integrating the various actors involved in water management
(government, users and civil society). Equal participation of
women and men in the different spaces will be promoted.
September 2018 December 2019
To implement a pilot project to consolidate face-to-face spaces
for participation through the incorporation of e-participation
tools and the development of new communication processes
(without gender stereotypes), in accordance with AGESIC’s eparticipation
Program.
February 2019 December 2019
To advance in the implementation of the open data policy
related to Uruguay's water resources, monitoring stations and
the use of these resources (reservoirs, intakes, wells),
incorporating the data into the national catalog.
July 2019 December 2019
To define and agree on a working strategy with the different
actors for the inclusion of the topic of water in the various
educational spaces and for the development of a new water
culture through:
February 2019 December 2019
- 4 working meetings/workshops with the
participation of institutions linked to integrated
water resource management, education
authorities and the National Network of
Environmental Education.
- A diagnostic document and proposal for the
incorporation and updating of the theme of water
in the various educational spaces and for the
development of a new water culture. Efforts will be
made to avoid reinforcing gender stereotypes.
