Water plays multiple roles in ecosystems and society. Yet, the dependency of human wellbeing on ecosystems has been given insufficient attention where narrow economic pursuits have been given priority over environmental concerns. Through integrated water resources management (IWRM), managers and stakeholders deal with the complex task of securing water for people, industry, food production, navigation, hydropower and the environment. Welcome to join our seminar at Stockholm World Water Week!

The seminar is convened by the Stockholm International Water Institute, the Global Water Partnership, the Global Environment Facility - International Waters: Learning Exchange and Resource Network, the Action Platform for Source to Sea Management and National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.


09.00-10.30 Session I: Setting the scene: Are IWRM and ecosystem based approach complimentary, duplicating or competing?

11.00-12.30 Session II: Navigating the interlinkages of IWRM and ecosystem based management for climate change adaptation
