The new and improved IWRM ToolBox website will be launched on stage in the exhibition hall on Monday 2 September at 16.10-16.30. Senior Knowledge Management Officer Danka Thalmeinerova will be there to present the website and answer questions.
Three new Policy Briefs will be available at the GWP booth B01:21 throughout the week:
- “Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM): Toward Diversification and Sustainability” outlines how IUWM can provide a framework for planning, designing, and managing urban water systems.
- “International Law: Facilitating Transboundary Water Cooperation” explains the importance of cooperation between states in order to resolve water problems and share limited resources.
- “The Economic Value of Moving Toward a More Water Secure World” explains why it is important to understand the economic value of water security compared to other priorities.
Additionally, the new Perspectives Paper “Urban Groundwater – Policies and Institutions for Integrated Management” will be available at the booth. It offers an overview of the benefits of urban groundwater use, along with a discussion on some of the persistent problems related to this.
All papers are based on GWP Background Papers and publications by the network’s Technical Committee, which is a group of internationally recognised water experts. The material is for free and can be downloaded via the GWP home page or ordered in printed format via firstname.lastname@example.org.
