IWRA launched the SWM Case Study Report draft Executive Report at Korea International Water Week 2018 this week. This report showcases 10 SWM case studies from around the world, and 9 upcoming SWM projects from both developed and developing countries, to demonstrate the potential for SWM in both developed and developing countries. The report provides an in depth look at how these SWM projects were implemented, the enabling factors and potential barriers faced, and how SWM can assist with achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Based on cross case analysis, the report looks at the potential for SWM replication and scalability, and provides policy recommendations to assist decision-makers with supporting future SWM implementation. The full report will be published online from October. Please keep an eye on www.iwra.org/swm for more information.
This report’s primary objective was to demonstrate the potential for SWM to resolve current water related challenges across a variety of contexts, scales and geographic locations. The findings in the report demonstrate the successes already seen in SWM in both developed and developing countries, and the potential for future success with further support from governments, the private and public sector and collaborative knowledge sharing. The report presents the key findings and recommendations based on this analysis, to provide key insights for decision-makers interested in supporting the future implementation of SWM in their country.
