Integrated Water Resources Management in practice
16 August 2011
Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) is widely recognized as a prerequisite for achieving equitable and sustainable development. However, this approach is poorly understood, even within the water sector. Using case studies, this book published in March 2009 explores how IWRM has contributed, at different scales, from very local, village-level experiences to reforms at national level and beyond to cases involving trans-boundary river basins.
Highlighting relevant experiences, from both developed and developing countries in five continents, the book provides candid and practical lessons for policy-makers, donors, and water and development practitioners worldwide, looking at how IWRM principles were applied, what worked, and, equally important, what didn’t work, and why.Search Terms books analytical frameworks case studies
