Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) - International training courses

Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) - International training courses

Publié : Mars 2011

Water management varies in different countries and water basins because of the nature and
intensity of problems involved.
An integrated water resource management approach helps provide a better response to
challenges and is an important step towards sustainable development.
Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) goes hand in hand with both modern
governance
and a legal and institutional framework that is adapted to tackling issues of :

  •  Identifying the principle water resource issues at the basin’s natural borders (i.e. river, lake or
  •  aquifer basin) ;
  •  Monitoring and information systems ;
  •  Involving users and civil society in decision-making ;
  •  Devising planning tools ;
  •  Setting up durable finance mechanisms.

France has had valuable experience in this domain. The European legal system took inspiration
from France in drawing up its Water Framework Directive (WFD - 2000). However, experiences
should always be fully adapted to meet local characteristics
, whether geographical, political,
environmental, economic, social or cultural.
Training sessions focusing on practical and coaching aspects constitute highly beneficial tools
for developing skills and transferring knowledge on how to implement IWRM.
