Abstract:

While there is no single accepted definition of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM), the international community, including key organizations, such as the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, has widely accepted the Global Water Partnership's definition of IWRM as a process that 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 ecosystems. Practitioners agree that this requires a highly consultative process, engaging the watershed communities as well as stakeholders.
