The IUWM approach requires engaging all stakeholders, included local communities, in solving the problems of water management.
The success of the IUWM Master Plan will be highly contingent upon whether its output will be supported by all stakeholders. Accordingly, it is essential for the success of the IUWM Master Plan to adopt a participatory approach that, since the very beginning of the assignment, will involve all major stakeholders. For this purpose, four specific stakeholder workshops will be organized.
The Stakeholders are involved in the different stages of the project, as well as in formal workshops, in order to take into account their vision.
The identified stakeholders of this project are:
- Ministry of Environment, Water and Climate (MoEWC);
