The National Programme for Universal Access to and Use of Water - Water for All, coordinated jointly by the Department of Regional Development (SDR) of the MI and the Brazil Without Poverty Plan, aims to ensure broad access to water for dispersed rural populations living in extreme poverty. This target population uses water for own consumption, food production and animal husbandry, which enables the generation of marketable surpluses to increase the family income of the farmers. European agencies of development cooperation have extensive experience in the field of regional development through the universalisation and rational use of water, including the problem of scarcity. These successful experiences will provide input to a study for the creation of the governance model for the Water for All programme. At least four experiences will be examined in Latin American or African countries, having conditions similar to those in Brazil, that is, programmes in rural communities and in those of extreme poverty. The fidings will be presented at the National Conference on Regional Development, to be held in Brasilia in December 2012. Overall objective: Survey international experiences to provide input for the proposed improvement of the management and governance model of the Water for All programme. Specific objectives and expected results: - Facilitate and establish channels of communication to strengthen the exchange of information; - Promote the exchange of information between experts from Europe and from other countries (Latin America and / or Africa) and the MI on policies aimed at universal access to water; - Disseminate experiences on the issue of universal access to water at the National Conference of Regional Development.
