One possibility to support the worldwide implementation of IWRM is to improve respective research and education.
This is why IWAS (International Water Research Alliance Saxony), together with the German IHP/HWRP (International Hydrological Programme of UNESCO and Hydrology and Water Resources Programme of WMO), has developed an E-learning module on IWRM that is supposed to complement classical learning options.
Since IWRM is complex and as interdisciplinarity is often missing in water management, the module interlinks lectures, i.e. thematic and geographical linkages (e.g. climate change) between the lectures appear, allowing the user to switch from one lecture to another one.
To facilitate access to the module, the 39 lectures are subdivided into six categories:
Target groups of the module are graduating students in water-related fields, decision makers, water experts and administrative staff.
