ACIWRM




The Government of Karnataka (GOK) committed to the establishment of an Advanced Centre for Integrated Water Resources Management (ACIWRM) in the 2011-12 financial year budget. The ACIWRM is the first of its kind in India. The rationale for the initiative was to create an enabling environment for the GOK to pursue its objective of moving towards achieving water and food security. The IWRM framework provides the opportunity to integrate the land and water-related management aspects at the sub-basin and river basin levels.
