Abstract

The Guidelines consist of two parts. Part 1 deals with the Overarching Principles of IWRM at River Basin Level. Part 2 deals with practical examples intended for use by practitioners of IWRM. Part 1 provides basic principles of IWRM mainly targeting policy-makers, and explains the benefits of IWRM at river basin level and the need to promote it at the policy level. It also proposes a spiral model of IWRM, which illustrates the evolving and dynamic nature of the IWRM process. Part 2 consists of three sub-parts: • Part 2-1 The Guidelines for IWRM Coordination • Part 2-2 The Guidelines for Flood Management • Part 2-3 Invitation to IWRM for Irrigation Practitioners Part 2-1 and Part 2-2 are compiled from the point of view of comprehensive coordination of IWRM at the basin level. Part 2-3 is prepared from the perspective of irrigation practitioners as representatives of water users. This document invites them to actively participate in IWRM. Hence, the document is entitled ‘Invitation to IWRM’. Two main features of the Guidelines are the Sector Perspectives and the ‘Key for Success’. Sector Perspectives provide insights on what individual sectors are typically thinking. What is described in this section may not be complete, but the important thing is to know how other sectors perceive water management and how they are related to IWRM. The core of Part 2 is the keys for success, which can be used in practice to help IWRM succeed at the basin level. Some of the keys for success are extracted from good examples of IWRM implementation in several different river basins worldwide
