The paradigm shift in approach to the management of the nation’s water resources, from the traditional to the global best practices of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM), also requires that appropriate legal and institutional framework and policies are put in place to drive the process. Integrated Water Resources Management Approach seeks to promote the availability of sufficient water quantitatively and qualitatively, and in both temporal and spatial context for all uses and users.
Other underlying objectives of the IWRM approach include social equity and enhancement of access to the resource by the different strata of the populace as well as the protection and sustainability of the environment.
