New IUCN Water Case Studies

10 April 2012 | News story

IUCN Water recently published 3 new demonstration case studies, providing more detail and lessons on water management approaches in the Mekong, Tacana, and Volta basins.

The new demonstration case studies add to the existing series already consisting of thematic and demonstration projects: Environmental Flows, Komadugu Yobe and Pangani Basins.

The new case study on the Mekong River Basin zooms in on how to mobilise grassroots engagement and facilitate high-level dialogue for transboundary water management.

The Volta River basin case study, looks at transboundary water management through multi-level participatory governance and community projects in Ghana and Burkina Faso,

Implementation of Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) through local community action and transboundary water governance is the focus of the new case study on the Tacana Watersheds, shared between Guatemala and Mexico.

The IUCN case study series aims to showcase demonstration projects and provide more detail on thematic approaches with concrete examples in water management. The case study series complements the Water Briefings and WANI Results' Report, and demonstrates the global scope of our work.
