The Netherlands Institutions Alumni Association of Nigeria in collaboration with the Ogun River Basin Communities presents:

PRE-SUMMIT STAKEHOLDERS’ FORUM ON INTEGRATED APPROACH TO WATER MANAGEMENT IN NIGERIA, TO HOLD ON WEDNESDAY, 11TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT BSN NIGERIA, GRA, IKEJA, LAGOS. 

Integrated Water Resources Management is a framework, designed to improve the management of water resources, based on the four key principles adopted in 1992, known as the 1992 Dublin Principles.

The principles are:

Principle No. 1
Fresh water is a finite and vulnerable resource, essential to sustain life, development and the environment

Principle No. 2
Water development and management should be based on a participatory approach, involving users, planners and policy-makers at all levels

Principle No. 3
Women play a central part in the provision, management and safeguarding of water

Principle No. 4
Water has an economic value in all its competing uses and should be recognized as an economic good


Theme

In the light of the foregoing challenges in the Water Sector, the first International Water Summit seeks to bring together relevant  stakeholders for a cross-sectional discourse, aimed at:

  • Reducing the incidences of flooding downstream of dams.
  • Improving food security through efficient and effective use of water, stored in dams for irrigation.
  • Exploring the potentials of the dams in the river basins to boost the generation of electricity.
  • Stimulating the transfer of knowledge and technologies in the water sector from the Netherlands to Nigeria.
  • Boosting the relationship between Nigeria and the Netherlands, and enhancing investment opportunities in Nigeria for Dutch organisations.
