Water Demand Management: The Mediterranean Experience


Global Water Partnership (GWP), established in 1996, is an international network open to all organisations involved in water resources management: developed and developing country government institutions, agencies of the United Nations, bi- and multilateral development banks, professional associations, research institutions, non-governmental organisations, and the private sector. GWP was created to foster Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM), which aims to ensure the co-ordinated development and management of water, land, and related resources by maximising economic and social welfare without compromising the sustainability of vital environmental systems.

Water Demand Management (WDM) requires a holistic approach that recognizes the complexity of the inter-relationships among all the factors affecting water demand. It calls for the creation of an enabling environment based on an adequate set of mutually supportive policies and a comprehensive legal framework with a coherent set of incentives and regulatory measures to support these policies. 

A Technical Focus Paper is a publication of the Technical Committee aimed at harnessing and sharing knowledge and experiences generated by Knowledge Partners and Regional/Country Water Partnerships through the GWP Knowledge Chain.
