  • Colombian Government's Integrated Water Resources Management Policy

    Colombian Government' s Integrated Water Resources Management Policy... Although Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM), which provides for a shared diagnostic for each watershed, has been to some extent included in legislation since 1993, it is not operational... It involves budget support to the Colombian Government for its Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) policy and, more specifically, the implementation of its water plan for 2014. Its first objective is to help Colombia establish a clear sectoral framework, a prerequisite for the success of all subsequent investment projects in the sector, by: -Ensuring that the watersheds on which the autonomous environmental authorities (CAR) are working have priority; -Giving the CAR the financial resources they require for their policy by invoicing fees; -Including risk management in watershed development plans; -Ensuring that participatory water management is effectively established in the priority watersheds via the activities of basin committees; -Provide the Institute of Hydrology, Meteorology and Environmental Studies (IDEAM) with effective tools to monitor water resources in priority areas
