OSU's Program in Water Conflict Management and Transformation has a long tradition of fostering multi-objective decision-making solutions though information-sharing; agency coordination; stakeholder participation and networking. This includes working towards addressing water-related challenges here and around the world by working with partners to heighten our research approach and perspective. The PWCMT collaborates with several institutions, consortiums and partnerships: 

  • From Potential Conflict to Cooperation Potential (PCCP) facilitates multi-level and interdisciplinary dialogues in order to foster peace, co-operation and development related to the management of transboundary water resources. Housed within The International Hydrological Programme (IHP), and a contribution to World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP), PCCP addresses situations where water users need support to manage their transboundary water resources in a peaceful and equitable manner. It capitalizes on the desire of the concerned parties to successfully manage their transboundary water resources in order to create a foundation upon which peace and cooperation are consolidated.
