In the current context of rapid urbanisation and vulnerability to the effects of climate change, improving the management of water resources using IWRM processes will help maximise the efficiency, effectiveness, and sustainable use of water resources for local socio-economic development while protecting and preserving the environment to mitigate climate change events and disaster risks.
