  • 5. Integrated Urban Water Management  UWM is now on the verge of a revolution in response to rapidly escalating urban demands for water as well as the need to make urban water systems more resilient to climate change;  it is imperative to rethink conventional concepts – to shift from an approach that attempts to manage different aspects of urban water cycle in isolation to an integrated approach supported by all stakeholders;  IUWM, nested within the broader framework of IWRM, can contribute to water security in a basin or catchment by aligning the urban water sector with rural water supply, agriculture, industry, energy and the environment.
  • 6. Increasing Water Security – A Development Imperative
  • 7. Water in the Green Economy  Effective water management is a central plank in achieving a green economy;  Water security and green growth are synergistic;  IWRM can facilitate and lead the process of ‘greening’ the world’s economies.
  • 8. Water Demand Management: The Mediterranean Experience  WDM calls for the creation of an enabling environment based on an adequate set of mutually supportive policies and a comprehensive legal framework with a coherent set of incentives and regulatory controls to support these policies;  WDM requires recognition of the economic value of water in different uses;  WDM strategy should be accompanied by a financing strategy to cover the investment requirements for reducing water losses in the production-supply-utilization systems and controlling user wastage.
  • 9. The Role of Decision Support Systems & Models in Integrated River Basin Management  Achieving water security means resolving trade-offs to maintain a proper balance between meeting various sectors’ needs and taking account of present and future overall social, economic and environmental goals;  Using analytical modelling tools in IWRM may be important for finding best-use solutions, achieving sustainable and equitable water security for multiple purposes, and managing and mitigating unforeseen disasters.
