    more data on water resources, are needed especially in developing nations. To assess the state of our water resources, we must fully appreciate the roles of different parts of the water cycle – such as rain, meltwater from glaciers, and so on. Otherwise, it remains difficult to develop adequate protection and mitigation strategies.   The economic, social and cultural viability of any nation is mainly determined by the land and water resources that it has (Harahsheh, ). These natural resources are essential to the economy of a nation since they play a critical role in the provision of employment, they are a source of raw materials for various industries, acts as a source of food and income, medicine as well as energy.

    Information systems are used to run interorganizational supply chains and electronic markets. For instance, corporations use information systems to process financial accounts, to manage their human resources, and to reach their potential customers with online promotions. Many major companies are built entirely around information systems.   whole - and include the importance of community management of water resources and the need for cost-effective solutions and, perhaps most importantly, the need to promote commitment and involvement in sectoral issues from the highest levels of government to the.

THE GWP AND THE INBO A HANDBOOK FOR INTEGRATED WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT IN BASINS 2 | The Global Water Partnership(GWP) is an international network whose vision is for a water-secure world. Water resources are natural resources of water that are potentially useful. Uses of water include agricultural, industrial, household, recreational and environmental activities.

All living things require water to grow and reproduce. 97% of the water on the Earth is salt water and only three percent is fresh water; slightly over two thirds of this is frozen in glaciers and polar ice caps.

It also looks systematically at other areas that impact water systems, including land use patterns, agriculture, and energy. There are four central components of integrated water resource management: stormwater management, wastewater treatment, water supply, and conservation of existing water .In a natural hydrologic system, much of the water that falls as precipitation returns to the atmosphere through evaporation and transpiration from vegetation.

At the land surface, the water may pond, and depending upon the soil type, ground cover, antecedent moisture, and other land surface properties, a portion may infiltrate into the soil.This flagship report analyses a variety of options for overcoming constraints and improving resource management in areas of heightened risk.

In each location, a mix of changes in institutional and policy measures will have to be combined with greater access to technologies for better management of land and water resources.
