ICIWaRM Team Leads Workshop for Peru National Water Authority

ALEXANDRIA, VA – 16 September 2009. International Center for Integrated Water Resources Management (ICIWaRM) team members led an Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) workshop for Peru’s National Water Authority (ANA) on August 17-21, 2009 in Lima, Peru. The workshop centered around integrated participatory water resources planning tools. The project was in support of a World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) loan initiative to modernize water management in Peru.

The one-week workshop was followed by a presentation to the Vice Minister of Agriculture and a one-week session with the World Bank, IDB, and ANA staff. The follow-up session served as a forum to revise the terms of reference for implementation of the World Bank loan according to integrated and participatory water resources management principles.

Institute for Water Resource’s (IWR) Shared Vision Planning team provided technical support for the workshop and the following session. Guillermo Mendoza and Hal Cardwell from IWR and Aleix Serrat-Capdevila of the University of Arizona in Tucson participated in the events.

More about Shared Vision Planning

Shared Vision Planning (SVP) is a collaborative approach to formulating water management solutions that combines three disparate practices: 1) traditional water resources planning, 2) structured public participation and 3) collaborative computer modeling. What makes Shared Vision Planning unique is the integration of traditional planning processes with structured public participation and collaborative computer modeling. Its goal is to improve the economic, environmental and social outcomes of water management decisions.
