About the IWRM Survey

The survey contains approximately 30 questions, divided into four sections, each covering a key dimension of IWRM:

1. Enabling environment: Policies, laws and plans to support IWRM implementation.

2. Institutions and participation: The range and roles of political, social, economic and administrative institutions and other stakeholder groups that help to support implementation.

3. Management instruments: The tools and activities that enable decision-makers and users to make rational and informed choices between alternative actions.

4. Financing: Budgeting and financing for water resources development and management.

Each section has two sub-sections covering the “National” and “Other” levels. “Other” levels include sub-national, basin, local and transboundary (see Glossary). For most “other level” questions, the score should reflect the situation in most of the basins/aquifers/jurisdictions, unless specified otherwise. For the transboundary level questions, the score should reflect the situation in the ‘most important’ transboundary basins/aquifers, which should ideally be coordinated with reporting under SDG indicator 6.5.2 on transboundary cooperation. It is recognised that water resources management in federal countries may be more complex due to responsibilities at different administrative levels. You may further explain any specific circumstances relating to the level of decentralization of water resources management and responsibility in your country (e.g. federal countries and other large countries) in the free text responses (see next section).

If you are using the Survey for SDG 6.5.1 stakeholder consultations, we invite you to review the IWRM Survey FAQ.
