CALL FOR PAPERS: Special Issue of International Journal of Water Resources Development

The Special Issue is on the topic of IWRM Revisited: From concept to implementation.

The concept of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) has been around in one form of another for at least 60 years. Especially over the past two decades, most donors and international organizations have promoted IWRM very heavily with the objective of solving the world´s water problems. While hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent to implement the IWRM concept, this has been very difficult to achieve anywhere in the world for macro- and meso-scale water policies, programmes and projects.

The special issue aims to analyze in-depth the state of implementation of the IWRM concept at local, basin, regional and national levels. Discussions will include, but not necessarily be limited to, the following topics:

Interested authors are encouraged to submit 1-2 pages of extended abstracts to Dr. Cecilia Tortajada, Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Water Resources Development, e-mails: and, by 30 June 2013 at the latest.

Final papers for publication consideration must be received by 30 October 2013. The special issue will be published by June 2014.
