The purpose of developing these Guidelines is to raise awareness and to facilitate the practical implementation of IWRM at the basin level.
Part 1: Principles (2,4 MB) provides basic principles of IWRM mainly targeting policy-makers, and explains the benefits of IWRM at river basin level and the need to promote it at the policy level. It also proposes a spiral model of IWRM, which illustrates the evolving and dynamic nature of the IWRM process.
Part 2.1: Guidelines for IWRM Coordination (11.13MB) is intended for practitioners involved in IWRM coordination. It can be used as introductory guidance for those tackling IWRM for the first time, or as training material for intermediary practitioners and trainers of IWRM.
Part 2.2: Flood Management (4,14 MB) is intended for practitioners involved in flood management.
Part 2.3. Invitation to IWRM for Irrigation Practitioners (1,78 MB) is intended for practitioners tackling with irrigation planning.
