Why IWRM and What it Means

25th of June, 2013

Eng. Ahmed Abouelseoud

Senior Water Resources Management Expert

about water
About Water ….
  • A “Single” Resource – has no substitute
  • A Limited Resource
  • A Scarce Resource (or is it?)
  • Has Social, Economic, and Environmental Value (social and environment are recent)
a unique resource
A Unique Resource
  • Every organism, individual, and ecosystem on the planet depends on water for survival.
  • Water impacts all aspects of life on the planet
  • Poor water management and water shortages can lead to disease, malnutrition, reduced economic growth, social instability, conflict, and environmental disaster.
the global water budget

Global Freshwater

87% Not Accessible

13% Accessible (0.4% of global)

The Global Water Budget

Global Water

97% Seawater

3% Freshwater

the water scene
The Water Scene
  • Resources are scarce
  • Demands are outstripping supplies
  • Environmental/Ecological issues are serious
  • Policy and institutional issues are complicated
  • Current approach is sectoral and fragmented
  • Financing is poor and options are expensive
where are we headed
Where Are We Headed?
  • Decreasing per-capita availability
  • Degrading water quality
  • Increasing competition/conflict within sectors and within society
    • Urban versus agriculture
    • Haves versus have nots
    • Upstream versus downstream
    • National versus international
  • Increasing competition/conflict with the environment
water as a global issue
Water as a Global Issue
  • Water crisis has steadily moved up the global agenda
  • The process is driven by
    • water-related health impacts,
    • rapid industrialization,
    • water security, and
    • awakening environmental consciousness
the paradigm shift
The Paradigm Shift

The Dublin principles (1992)

  • Water is a single, finite resource
  • Water management and development should include stakeholders
  • Water is an economic good
  • Women play a central role in management and conservation of water

The Dublin Principles have served as guide for the global water dialogue

key water challenges and needs
Integrated management of water

Water resources economics

Political economy of water

Water supply and sanitation services


NRM and environment

Water pricing and cost recovery

Water entitlement and rights

Water users empowerment

Sharing of water and its benefits

Cooperation and conflict resolution


Key Water Challenges and Needs
mdgs a starting point
Goal 1. Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger

Goal 2. Achieve universal primary education

Goal 3. Promote gender equality and empower women

Goal 4. Reduce child mortality

Goal 5. Improve maternal health

Goal 6. Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases

Goal 7. Ensure environmental sustainability

Goal 8. Develop a Global Partnership for Development

MDGs … a starting point
approaches to water management
Approaches to Water Management
  • Ad hoc
  • Economic Analysis -- Single Project or Basin
  • Multi-Objective Planning
  • Comprehensive Multi-Purpose River Basin Planning and Management
  • Strategic Planning and Implementation through IWRM
the water balancing act


  • Quantity (Natural Scarcity,
  • Groundwater Depletion)
  • Quality Degradation
  • Cost of Options
  • Demand
  • Increasing in all sectors
  • Inefficient use


The Water Balancing Act
integrated water resources management
Integrated Water Resources Management

A systematic process for linking water and water-related policy, objectives, and uses to improve decision making in:

  • operation and management of natural resources and environmental systems;
  • design and implementation of programs and policies.

A coordinating framework for integrating sectoral needs, water and water-related policy, resource allocation, and management within the context of social, economic, and environmental development objectives.

why iwrm
  • Globally accepted and makes good sense.
  • Key element in national water policy.
  • Incorporates social and environmental considerations directly into policy and decision making.
  • Directly involves the stakeholders.
  • Is a tool for optimizing investments under tight financing climate.

Schematic of the IWRM Process

  • Stakeholder Input
  • Donor Input
  • Other Input


Development Objectives

Key Water & Water-related Policies/Inst.

Resources Assessment & Analysis

Review & Evaluation

Use Assessment & Analysis

Resource Allocation Strategy

Implementation & Monitoring

Resource Development & Management Plan

iwrm can be characterized as
IWRM can be characterized as:
  • A process, not a product
  • Scale independent - applies at all levels of development
  • A tool for self assessment and program evaluation
  • A tool for policy, planning, and management
  • A mechanism for evaluating competing demands, resource allocation, and tradeoffs
