The United Nations World Water Development Report

It is a comprehensive review that gives an overall picture of the state of the world’s freshwater resources and aims to provide decision-makers with the tools to implement sustainable use of our water.

In the IWRM ToolBox, you will find a collection of good practices for managing water resources at all levels. The ToolBox is a free and open database with a library of case studies and references that can be used by anyone who is interested in implementing better approaches for the management of water or learning more about improving water management on a local, national, regional or global level.

The ToolBox is also an excellent tool for you to engage with a broader community of interested professionals around the world and to share your experiences. We hope that the ToolBox in this new look will increase your knowledge, improve your network of contacts, and help you in implementing ideas and solutions for water related problems.
