Project Outputs

The LoGo Water project generated a large amount of information, guidance and research on Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) and local government. The most significant output of LoGo Water is the 'Local Government and Integrated Water Resources Management' set of materials which aim to assist local governments in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) with IWRM. Other LoGo Water output is also largely focussed on the project target region of Southern Africa although reports have also been produced which examine IWRM at the local level in Europe.

'Local Government and Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM)' set of materials

The following set of materials have been specifically tailored for local governments in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region. The materials aim to assist local governments in getting to grips with Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM). Also of use for organisations and individuals supporting local governments, the materials range from theory to practice and are available in English, Portuguese and French.
