This Medium Size Project (MSP) will complement the International Waters-Learn (IW-Learn) project of UNDP in the implementation of its mandate to improve communications and outreach between countries worldwide. Specifically, the project would act as a demonstration project using Latin America and the Caribbean as a privileged site to illustrate the functioning of a network system. This network would facilitate the exchange of project experiences and results, provide a mechanism for the dissemination and replication of lessons learned and best management practices to improve water resources management, as well as encourage the assimilation of lessons learned into national water resources management policies and river basin master plans.
