This handbook articulates the links between pressures and IWRM responses. Drawing on many experiences around the world, it provides practical guidance for improving the governance of freshwater resources through effective application of the IWRM approach in lakes, river basins, and aquifers. This Handbook was produced jointly by GWP and the International Network of Basin Organizations (INBO) in order to capture experiences with planning and implementing IWRM.
The overall purpose of the GWP/INBO handbook is to provide a practical guide to practitioners for the application of IWRM principles and practices at the river basin, lake and aquifer level. The handbook was launched at the 5th World Water Forum in Istanbul (March 2009).
This report presents the current state of the art of urine-diverting systems, with focus on Swedish experiences of urine diversion. The intention is to inspire decision- and policy-makers to consider urine diversion for sanitation interventions aimed at meeting the sanitation target of the Millennium Development Goals
This is training material intended for a 3-4 day course on how to achieve a water resources management plan that brings in the principles of IWRM. The aim is that this limited introduction will provide also an insight into the other tools and techniques that will be required. Useful tools are identified to support the planning process in each step. While the material is targeted for national IWRM plans it is readily adaptable for basin level planning and trainers are encouraged to be creative in adapting the material to suit local circumstances.
