The Global Water Initiative (GWI) was an action-research and advocacy programme that ran from 2008-17. The project is now closed. This site is no longer being updated, but allows access to GWI outputs until 1 October 2020 when it will also close. After that date, information about the project and core GWI technical publications will continue to be available from the IIED website and Publications Library.
An educational graphic designer worked with GWI to produce this set of accessible images that communicate the principles of Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM). These images can serve as prompts for both facilitators and water users, and are particularly useful when training communities where the majority of water users are illiterate (up to 90% of people in GWI Niger’s project communities).
