Water resources are best managed at river basin level. This is why Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) has been introduced. While IWRM in a river basin is mainly addressed at the countries sharing a basin, it is also highly relevant at the local level. IWRM has many advantages for local governments and can contribute to more sustainable water management. [authors abstract]
