Water research and science play an important role in advancing the principles of IWRM and the implementation of the process. To promote IWRM in international river basins, this requires a solid theoretical and practical understanding of the IWRM concept, associated principles and continuous research in different international, regional, national and local contexts.
The project has following objectives:
- To provide guiding framework for preparing national and regional water policies in international river basins in line with IWRM principles and best practices.
- To provide guiding framework for effective institutional arrangement for share water management of international river basins.
- To find out the shared benefits of shared management in selected river basins and provide examples of best practices from Nordic Countries.
