SMART Implementation of IWRM / Future IWRM in Asia-Pacific -What we have achieved and outlook by focusing on river basin level-

· Coordinator :
Network of Asian River Basin Organizations (NARBO)

There are three major water issues in Asia-Pacific region such as ‘Too much water (flood)’, ‘Too little water (Drought)’ and ‘Too dirty / polluted water (water pollution)’. Many activities to improve the current situation on water have been conducted at all levels. Focusing on the river basin level, progress of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) in the Asia-Pacific region is notable in this decade. Knowledge and experience on how to implement IWRM has been accumulated and shared in the region through many networks. Seeing the current situation in the region such as rapid economic growth and population growth, and uncertain climate by impact of climate change, we need to take effective actions immediately. In addition, IWRM, water-related disasters and climate change should not be treated at as a separate topic. IWRM approach is expected to contribute to solve these complex issues and develop solutions. The session will review achievement of IWRM in the Asia-Pacific by sharing innovative activities and discuss our future based on our footprint. As a summary, declaration which included the commitment of related organizations will be stated.
