Our approach

Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM)

Global Water Jobs' approach is in line with IWRM, which can be defined as a coordinated, goal-directed process for controlling the development and use of river, lake, ocean, wetland, and other water assets. This approach involves applying knowledge from various disciplines as well as the insights from diverse stakeholders to plan and implement efficient, equitable, and sustainable solutions to water and development problems. The International Community has recommended IWRM since the adoption of Agenda 21 at the Rio World Summit on Sustainable Development in 1992. 

The disciplines displayed in the above schematic can be applied to a variety of fields. Below is a non-exhaustive list of fields of work encompassed by IWRM.
