IDA at Work: Water Resources - Managing a Scarce, Shared Resource (2010)

International Development Association (IDA) funding for water resources management amounted to about US$1.5 billion across 110 projects approved during fiscal years 2000-10. IDA funding for this area has responded to the need to address both management and development issues by promoting integrated water resources planning, and by tackling institutional reforms along with infrastructure upgrades for various sectors. These include flood management, hydropower, agriculture water management, pollution control, transboundary river management, climate change adaptation and mitigation.
