1 Ecosystem-based River Basin Management (EcoBasin) and Data Need Takehiro NAKAMURA Programme Officer (Water) Division of Environmental Policy Implementation United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)

2 An INTEGRATED approach Integrated River Basin Management to manage relevant factors in the basins in order to achieve multiple objectives for resource use and protection of the aquatic environment. It is also an approach, which essentially takes a cross- sectoral and interdisciplinary approach to achieve institutional co-ordination and co- operation.

3 UNEPs approach Approaches to monitoring, assessment and management Integrated Coastal Area and River Basin Management (ICARM) (www1.unep.org/icarm) Ecosystem-based approach (follow-up to Wetlands and Integrated River Basin Management)

5 Different types of Ecosystems involved in River Basins Forest ecosystem Agricultural ecosystem Aquatic/Wetland ecosystem ----> examples of ecosystem functions (WRI classification)

7 Ecosystem-based River Basin Management Reduce ecosystem vulnerability and maximise ecosystem resilience based on the identified ecosystem functions to address environmental and resource issues
