National Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) System
Department of Irrigation and Drainage Malaysia
Welcome to Malaysia's National Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) System website. This website has been developed by JPS Malaysia in line with its role as the National Water Resources Manager (NWRM). The goal of this website is to provide the top-level information management support for achieving the IWRM vision for Malaysia

IWRM has been defined by the Global Water Partnership (GWP) as:

"A process which promotes the coordinated development and management of water, land, and related resources, in order to maximise the resultant economic and social welfare in an equitable manner without compromising the sustainability of vital ecosystems"

Malaysia is a signatory to the Rio Declaration (Earth Summit, 1992) and the Johannesburg Millennium Development Goals (World Summit, 2002) . Thus, Malaysia has adopted and continuously implemented IWRM principles in the development and management of its water resources. Various measures and actions have been undertaken not only by the government, but also by the private sectors and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The following is a list of some of the major IWRM achievements in Malaysia:
  • Adoption of IWRM principles in the Government's Third Outline Perspective Plan (2001-2010)(OPP3) & its 5-year Development Plans (8th & 9th Malaysian Plan)
  • Establishment of the National Water Resources Council (1998)
  • Re-organisation and formation of 4 ministries (Ministry of Natural Resources & Environment, Ministry of Energy, Water & Communication, Ministry of Agriculture & Agro Based Industry and the Ministry of Housing & Local Government) related towater resources (2003)
  • Establishment of state level river-basin management institutions
  • Formation of Malaysian Water Partnership (MyWP NGO) in 2003
