The approach of IWM is also focussing on the human resource, since human foster or reduces natural resource depletion. Sustainable management option and devices are only a real sustainable option as long as human are trained and awareness and sensivity for sustainability are imparted in each generation.

Human resources are the most crucial resource to be addressed. It all goes or fall with education at all levels.

However,  since  the  management  of  a  watershed  can  be  seen similar,  the  following management options  shall be  considered  for  IWM human  resources management. Whatever  is valid  for a company can be translated for watershed management:

  • recruitment: school pupils and IWM sensation at lowest level
  • personnel administration: WRUAs membership 
  • training & development: Training on IWM
  • performance:  individual  activities  of  WRUA  members  towards better IWM implementation
  • talent management: motivation  of  individual  and  small  groups actions towards better IWM implementation
  • career planning: Using IWM options for increasing livelihood
  • labor  relations:  using  cooperatives  and  looking  for  win‐win effects through IWM implementation
  • HR planning: participatory IWM planning and implementation
