Resources from the 5th WWF

The Global Water Partnership launched the following material at 5th WWF:

IWRM in Practice: Better Water Management for Development

This publication is timely for those concerned with the management of water resources for sustainable development and the reduction of poverty. It emphasizes that pragmatic, incremental approaches, which take into account contextual realities, have the greatest chance of working in practice. This book tells the stories of people and institutions around the world who have found ways to improve water management in a variety of settings.

The book is available for purchase at Earthscan Publishing House:

“This book is a must read for students, scholars, and practitioners of sustainable development…” Jeffrey Sachs, Director of The Earth Institute at Columbia University and Special Advisor to the UN Secretary-General

A Handbook for Integrated Water Resources Management in Basins

There is a dynamic relationship between basin stakeholders and central governments who have to work together to ensure the meeting of sustainable development goals. To support this, GWP and the International Network of Basin Organizations (INBO) produced this Handbook for improving the governance of freshwater resources. Written primarily for basin managers and government officials who need to take decisions related to water management, the content can be applied regardless of the context (developed or developing countries, humid or arid conditions).

The book is available in English and French. CDs and hard copies can be ordered from  free of charge.

How to Manage the World’s Water Resources — a double CD pack containing all GWP Technical Committee Papers and the new version of the GWP ToolBox website.

Good water management promotes economic and social progress. Poor water management hinders development. Dealing with water requires a holistic and coordinated approach. GWP believes an integrated approach to managing water resources is the best way to pursue the vision of a water secure world. These CDs contain what you need—whether you are a policy-maker, decision-maker, water professional, or academic— to understand water challenges, and implement solutions.

The CDs can be ordered from  free of charge.
