The implementation of specific elements of IWRM include:

  • Strengthening the performance capabilities of individuals, organisations and companies.
  • Strengthening local ownership of the development of solution strategies (ownership) and the pursuit of a participatory approach.
  • The implementation of specific water technologies in the target country will be accompanied by specific training in order to avoid errors initially and to strengthen long-term ownership in the operation and maintenance of technical equipment.
  • Raising awareness of sustainable use of watertl_files/Experiences/Experiences Gallerien neu/Dissemination of Water Fun in schools in Mongolia/3.BasumberSchoolMay2012.jpg
