Abstract

Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) is a comprehensive approach to the development and management of water, addressing its management both as a resource and the framework for provision of water services. It includes social, economic, and environmental factors in the planning, development, monitoring and protection of land and water resources. The management of water resources needs very careful attention and action, where we have to choose management instruments for effective water resources management that suits different local conditions. This article explores some of the important management instruments or tools including promotion of Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) as a mechanism for management practice for sustainable water resources management. This article also describes the importance of public participation and the role of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) procedure in water resources management.
