Definition

Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) is a form of ecosystem-based management which fosters participation and encourages respect for the diverse values and aspirations of communities.

Problems and Purpose

Whereas traditional water resource management often fails to address the complexity, uncertainty, and conflict in modern water resources planning, integrated management approaches have emerged to fill in these gaps. IWRM takes a bottom-up, as opposed to a top-down, approach to governing the natural environment and often utilises participatory democracy in decision-making (Fielding, 2016).
