APPRECIATION OF IWRM PRINCIPLES

   • Superficial understanding of holistic approach to water
     resources management but IWRM principles and
     processes yet to be grasped
   • People in academia and research institutions, few staff
     of FMWR, few NGOs are aware of IWRM principles
     but lack experience in implementation processes
   • Majority of stakeholders lack awareness of IWRM,
     therefore need to be sensitised
   • Informed stakeholders need to increase their level of
     awareness and be trained as trainers
