Description

This project study was conducted as a regional effort to explore solutions to the impacts of climate change and other stresses on water supply and food security, namely the potential for Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) to address these issues.

The report reviews related experiences of APEC economies adopting similar strategies, initiatives and tools to progress towards IWRM and achieving fundamental water, food security and climate change adaptation goals. The report concludes with a list of potential actions and resources that could contribute to solutions of the APEC region’s common challenges.
