Why is it important?

With the increasing population and accelerated urbanization, demands for water are rising for different sectors around the world including in South Asia. Integrated water resource management (IWRM) offers a promising potential to address multifaceted water demands.

Perspectives

With increasing world population, urban migration and standards of living, water demands for domestic and industrial sectors are rising. Consequently, the percentage share of water for agricultural use is declining. Hence, it requires the irrigation sector to produce more food with less water by improving irrigation management strategies.
