The world’s limited water resources are increasingly under stress. The potential use for productive and non-productive purposes is severely restricted because of limited water availability and decreasing water quality. Ecosystems are under threat and human water related health risks appear. Climate change adds to these threats which have far-reaching consequences for the livelihoods of the increasing populations.
Integrated Water Resources Management and Coastal Zone Management
DHI Water Policy assists governments and institutions in addressing these problems through good water governance, Integrated Water Resources Management and Coastal Zone Management both in a national and transboundary perspective. The assistance is often rendered in a partnership modality and covers areas such as diagnostic water resources assessments and institutional analyses, policy dialogues, development and implementation, legislation and overall sector reforms.
Facilitation of stakeholder involvement is a key component in all the policy development and implementation processes. Institutional reforms are followed up by human resource development and capacity building and assessments of impacts are made following monitoring and reviews of reform implementation.
