Idea and Definition of IWRM Top-down Supply-led Technical-based Sectoral } approaches Unsustainably high economic, social and ecological costs on human societies and the natural environment.

8 IWRM – Integrated Water Resources Management Find this presentation and more on: What is IWRM? Integrated water resources management is based on the perception of water as an integral part of the ecosystem, a natural resource and a social and economic good, whose quantity and quality determine the nature of its utilization. (GWP 2008) Definition of IWRM IWRM is a process which promotes the co-ordinated 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 ecosystems. (GWP 2008:22) 8 2. Idea and Definition of IWRM

9 IWRM – Integrated Water Resources Management Find this presentation and more on: IWRM as a Process IWRM should be viewed as a process rather a one-shot approach; one that is long-term and forward-moving but iterative rather than linear in nature Idea and Definition of IWRM Source: GWP (2004)

10 IWRM – Integrated Water Resources Management Find this presentation and more on: The Dublin Principles as a Guide to the Implementation of IWRM I.Fresh water is a finite and vulnerable resource, essential to sustain life, development and the environment. II.Water development and management should be based on a participatory approach, involving users, planners and policymakers at all levels III.Women play a central part in the provision, management and safeguarding of water. IV.Water has an economic value in all its competing uses and should be recognized as an economic good (GWP 2008:13) The Four Principles of IWRM

11 IWRM – Integrated Water Resources Management Find this presentation and more on: The Dimensions of IWRM The IWRM framework, as developed by the GWP, consists of three Es Economic efficiency in water use: Because of the increasing scarcity of water and financial resources, the finite and vulnerable nature of water as a resource, and the increasing demands upon it, water must be used with maximum possible efficiency; (Social) Equity: The basic right for all people to have access to water of adequate quantity and quality for the sustenance of human well-being must be universally recognized; Environmental and ecological sustainability: The present use of the resource should be managed in a way that does not undermine the life-support system thereby compromising use by future generations of the same resource. (GWP 2008) Integrating the three Es
