Steps of IWRM

The Global Water Partnership (2009a) developed a Handbook for Integrated Water Resources Management in Basins. The handbook identified sequential steps for basin management, including:

  • Outline broad policy goals as a vision for water management
  • Identify specific water management issues and problems
  • Evaluate potential solutions to resolve these issues
  • Implement the most appropriate strategy(s)
  • Evaluate the outcomes of implementing these strategies
  • Integrate the lessons learned from evaluating the outcomes into future work

An initial stage of this approach is revising future programs and activities based on past experiences in water planning and management, and incorporating new knowledge and information.
