BRAHMATWINN- Twinning European and South Asian River basins to enhance capacity and implement adaptive integrated water resources management approaches
BEST PRACTICE IN:
Improving integrated water resources management in mountain river system
Capacity building to harmonize integrated water resources management.
The project aimed to enhance and improve capacity to carry out harmonized integrated water resources management (IWRM) in mountain river systems like the Brahmaputra and to transfer IWRM expertise, approaches and tools, based on studies carried out in the Upper Danube River Basin (UDRB) in Europe, and the Upper Brahmaputra River Basin (UBRB) in South Asia.
Since the project involves improving the water resources management.
At the national level contributed to research activities and existing IWRM action plans, such as the Danube Regional Project (ICPDR, 2005) in the UDRB or the South Asia Water Analysis Network (SAWAN). At the European level, it contributed to the ongoing eﬀorts within the UDRB to implement the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and the principles of IWRM. On a global scale it strengthened the eﬀorts of “sustainable development” and it also contributed to implementation of the Global Water Partnership (GWP) withinEurope and Asia that considers holistic IWRM activities as a supporting prerequisite to reach the Millennium Development (GWP, 2004).
