News The latest policy brief on IWRM published: Policy brief No 4, How IWRM will contribute to achieving the MDGs

The series tackles key issues and potential stumbling blocks and attempts to give countries at the beginning of the process the benefit of lessons learned from those further down the path. The series complements Catalyzing Change: A Handbook for Developing Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) and Water Efficiency Strategies.
