Managing Water Locally: An essential dimension of community water development
This report explores how local water resources can be managed successfully by community-based institutions in support of state-level initiatives, where they exist. It follows 12 months of close collaboration between Oxfam GB and WaterAid, who are jointly promoting Community-Based Water Resource Management, which emphasises that the potential for monitoring and managing water resources at local or community level should be better acknowledged. In particular, traditional water management practices must be recognised and used as a foundation for the development of future water management strategies. Full report available on OXFAM website.
