The increasing conviction of the reality of climate change provides a new impetus for reforming water management. The IWRM approach provides management instruments and tools for effective adaptation. For simple self-learning on IWRM and adaptation to climate change, Cap-Net, WMO/APFM, UNESCO-IHE and other partners have developed an online tutorial based on the training manual and facilitators guide "IWRM as a Tool for Adaptation to Climate Change".
The tutorial is intended to contribute to a better understanding of the use and effectiveness of application of IWRM concepts and principles when strategising for climate change adaptation. The target audience includes water managers and high level officials responsible for developing adaptation strategies. Other beneficiaries include academics and students.
Participants in courses on the subject will be provided with conceptual and practical knowledge and capacity builders will find assistance to conduct short training courses on IWRM and adaptation to climate change. Teachers and moderators are encouraged to adapt the materials to their particular regional contexts.
