Scenario > Water Management and Climate Change – Across Boundary Issues

This is a future scenario* to show how the charter can create a shift in how Multi-level governance (MLG) is applied in Europe. It has been developed during the “Engagement Interviews”,  (Brussels – 03-04/2012).

* The following story is a fiction imagined during the co-creation process and does not engage the public authorities or stakeholders eventually mentioned.


Paul Hoffman, Senior Policy Advisor (Luxemburg)

Environmental issues in Luxemburg relate to the national and international policies being set. The issues locally that are managed are schools, roads and waste management. The more ‘universal’ issues without boundaries such as water management, climate change and air pollution have a broader focus. The local level of Luxembourg needs to address the issues in their local context, however need to comply and work with national and international levels to monitor and measure progress. The Multi-level Governance (MLG)  charter is assisting with the conversation, negotiation and facilitation going on between different levels of government to achieve the issues which cross boundaries.
