  2. 2. Overview of Presentation <ul><li>What is IWRM? </li></ul><ul><li>GWP ToolBox for IWRM </li></ul><ul><li>IWRM Tools </li></ul><ul><li>IWRM Cases by Region </li></ul><ul><li>IWRM Reference Materials </li></ul><ul><li>IWRM ToolBox Partners </li></ul><ul><li>Submission of IWRM Cases </li></ul>
  3. 3. INTEGRATED WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT (IWRM) <ul><li>Water is a critical, but often overlooked element in sustainable development.  If effective, long lasting solutions to water problems are to be found, a new water governance and management paradigm is required. Such a new paradigm is encapsulated in the Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) concept, which has been defined by GWP as ‘a process which promotes the coordinated development and management of water, land and related resources in order to maximize the resultant economic and social welfare in an equitable manner without compromising the sustainability of vital eco-systems’. </li></ul>
  4. 4. INTEGRATED WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT (IWRM) <ul><li>IWRM explicitly challenges conventional, fractional water development and management systems and places emphasis on an integrated approach with more coordinated decision making across sectors and scales. It recognizes that exclusively top-down, supply-led, technically-based and sectoral approaches to water management are imposing unsustainably high economic, social and ecological costs on human societies and on the natural environment.  Business as usual is neither environmentally sustainable, nor is it sustainable in financial and social terms. As a process of change which seeks to shift water development and management systems from their currently unsustainable forms, IWRM has no fixed beginnings and will probably never end. The global economy and society are dynamic and the natural environment is also subject to change. IWRM systems will, therefore, need to be responsive to change and be capable of adapting to new economic, social and environmental conditions and to changing human values. </li></ul>

  10. 13. SUBMISSION OF IWRM CASES <ul><li>The ToolBox is an information exchange – experiences shared help to develop the body of knowledge which can enable us to work together to build water security and sustainable water for all. GWP has developed the ToolBox as a free access source of knowledge. You can share your knowledge and submit case studies and references to the ToolBox and to the other members of the community. </li></ul><ul><li>To add a case study first you submit a one page proposal. The ToolBox team will review and comment on your proposal and reply directly to you by email. The case proposal will be posted on the ToolBox website once it has been reviewed. Then you prepare the full case study (max. 8 – 10 pages) or you might provide us with the reserence links where the detailed description could be found (external online links). </li></ul><ul><li>You can submit any new references, organizations, websites or comments to the ToolBox team that you think will add to the knowledge in the IWRM ToolBox database. To facilitate fast and accurate updating we would like to ask you to use standardized formats when you submit any new information. The ToolBox team will review and comment on your submitted and reply directly to you by email. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Case Study one page proposal </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Full Case Study </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>References </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Websites </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Guidelines for contributors </li></ul></ul>

  12. 15. IWRM Reference Materials <ul><li>REFERENCES: SUPPORTING MATERIAL AND BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON IWRM Furthermore, all the Tools and Cases are linked to reference materials. These range from policy papers, articles, briefing notes to results of research projects, and summaries of assistance programs. They also refer to external links and web sites of organizations working in the area of IWRM. </li></ul>
  13. 16. IWRM ToolBox Partners <ul><li>CapNet Cap-Net   focuses on education, training and applied research, and encourages partnerships and networking at national, regional and global levels. Cap-Net's objectives will be achieved through networking, awareness creation, training and education, and development of relevant materials/tools. GWP and Cap-Net regularly add new training materials, references and information on courses to their on-line dataases. The materials are freely available for educational purposes. </li></ul>
  14. 17. IWRM ToolBox Partners <ul><li>AP Flood Management The Associated Programme on Flood Management (APFM) is a joint initiative of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the Global Water Partnership. It promotes the concept of Integrated Flood Management (IFM) as a new approach to flood management. The programme has been financially supported by the governments of Japan and the Netherlands. The APFM is being developed as a series of regional nodes, starting with South America, Central America, Southern Africa and South Asia.The Programme aims to combine IWRM thinking into flood management practices and vice versa. It is designed to assist regional flood management networks by providing access to synthesized knowledge and best practices, capacity building, advice on management approaches, and exchange of cross-regional experiences.  Updates on activities of Associated Programme of Flood Management are accessible </li></ul>
  15. 18. <ul><li>NeWater Introduction NeWater is a research-action project (2005-2009) funded by the European Union’s 6th Framework research programme and focuses on adaptive water management. It conducts research on the adaptation measures necessary for addressing uncertainty through management tools such as IWRM.  It brings together 38 European academic and research institutions as partners. The project is concerned with how to integrate into management plans previsions to deal with the effects, certain and uncertain, that climate change will have on the bio-physical and socio-economic environments of a watershed. The project also aims at producing robust scientific knowledge on the intersection of science, policy, environment and management. It has been set up to inform policy-makers and practitioners through specific tools and other knowledge forms such as training materials and techno-scientific reports. </li></ul>IWRM ToolBox Partners
  16. 19. <ul><li>Ground Water - MATE The Groundwater Management Advisory Team (GW-MATE) offers strategic assistance in several areas. In full consultation with stakeholders it can provide advice on groundwater resource management and protection, on the role of governments, on associated policy and institutional issues, and by helping to mobilise stakeholders to facilitate the implementation of improved management systems. </li></ul>IWRM ToolBox Partners
  17. 20. <ul><li>INBO The main goal of the International Network of Basin Organizations (INBO) is to upgrade and support the development of organizational initiatives for IWRM in river basins/lake basins/aquifer level. The four main outputs are: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>direct cooperation established between existing, future or pilot water basin organisations through twinning agreements; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>mobilisation within existing basin organisations of professional support capacities to facilitate the development of new basin organisations and the debate on their management options; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>a synthesis of available knowledge and know-how, of best practices, preparation of recommendations or guidelines and drawing-up of training modules; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the networking of water documentation systems to share and provide access to useful institutional, legal, economic and technical information at the international level. </li></ul></ul>IWRM ToolBox Partners
