 This training manual and facilitator’s guide aims to assist capacity builders to conduct short training courses on economic and financial instruments for integrated water resources management. The target audience for such trainings are water managers who face water allocation decisions and aim for efficient and effective use of the resource. It is also suitable for use in educational programmes and for awareness-building actions.
 The document is structured in two main sections: the Training Manual and the Facilitators’ Guide provides the concepts and principles of economic and financial aspects of sustainable water management and, at the same time, the practical application of economic and financial tools and instruments, and considers these aspects within the context of integrated management of the resource. The goals and learning objectives are specified at the beginning of each chapter and reflection statements and questions are provided throughout the document.
 The facilitator’s guide, section 2, provides the capacity builder with practical guidance for the organisation and conduct of courses on the subject. It outlines sessions for each of the chapters as well as suggestions for the organisation of the course and for moderation and innovative learning. The guide includes suggestions for the materials to be used, the length and organisation of the sessions, exercises and interactive sessions, and energisers that can be used throughout the course. It includes reference to useful resources and websites. A sample course programme for a five-day training course is provided to help structuring the course.
The accompanying CD contains the training manual and facilitator's guide, power point presentations and suggested reading, including the full version of each reference presented.
