The need for Integrated Land and Water Resources Management (ILWRM), to meet and balance competing demands for food, timber and water, for conservation, amenity, recreation and the environment and for supporting people's livelihoods, is discussed. The principles of ILWRM including notions of sustainability, approaches to the economic valuation of land and water and demand management, are outlined. Also discussed are the differing public and science perceptions of the impacts of land use change, the interactions between land use, climate change, and water resources and how ILWRM can be implemented with stakeholder involvement.
