  • Muliti uses and services and few are truly valued in an economic sense.
  • The principles and concepts of IWRM have been widely recognized, but the implementation of IWRM is not satisfactorily progressing in many basins. This is, perhaps, because the practitioners responsible for water resources management at the basin level encounter difficulties in understanding where and how to begin, or the advantages of applying IWRM with respect to their actual situation may not be apparent enough

Water Monitoring for Ecosystem Health: research, classification and monitoring of water bodies to better understand pressures, drivers, pathways, trends and impacts. 3. Water for Development: capacity enhancement with water users – Water and Agriculture: the single most intensive water user in the Davao region – Water and Health: ensuring basic human rights and equitable platform of sustainable development – improving access to water and sanitation through non subsidy driver approaches such as CLTS – Water and Energy: understanding how we supply energy critical for economic development while ensure ecosystem services continue to secure benefits to local marginalized communities and down stream urban communities. 4. Water adaption and preparedness for global changes: researching and piloting managing water under uncertainty and risk.

    21. 21. Integrating the fragmented sectors – formal organizational initiatives in major river basins – importance of IWRM, was then brought to public attention.
    22. 22. Integrating the fragmented sub- basins – framework under the international HELP network & enacted under local ordinance – Local NGOs took on the coordination role, which resulted in an effective participation of the different stakeholder groups.
    23. 23. Awareness of importance of technology for water management • local actors realized the importance of understanding hydrological processes through HELP • collection of reliable and appropriate data and the making of rigorous analysis paved the way toward resolving water and environment issues.
    24. 24. Participation in International learning initiatives • to maintain awareness of the benefits of good water management and the risks of ignoring the challenges. • NARBO, the GWP and Satoyama Initiative. • global initiatives and frameworks are proving to be a powerful tool to motivate and engage local actors.
