dc.description.abstract
Despite being a very popular concept, there is a lack of empirical knowledge regarding the successes of implementing Intergraded Water Resources Management (IWRM). This study reveals how Mozambique adopted the IWRM concept and main principles into its national water law, policies and institutions. The adoption of the IWRM concept occurred in a top– down direction, from the international level to the country level via external influence. Three main factors accounted for the adoption of the concept by Mozambique: a) developments of the IWRM approach at the global and regional levels, b) the influence of the international community through different organizations, and to a lesser extent c) the natural physical and socio-economic characteristics of the country. The IWRM principles have been initiated in the Limpopo River Basin, and despite all best efforts, the principles have been so far poorly implemented.
