The United Nations University International Network on Water, Environment and Health (UNU-INWEH) in partnership with the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) has developed a distance learning program in Integrated Water Resources Management.

The long-term goal of the Water Virtual Learning Center (WVLC) is to enhance national capacities for the development and implementation of sustainable water strategies in developing countries, at local, regional, sub-regional and basin scales. The program is directed to practicing professionals in the water sector wishing to upgrade their knowledge of modern water management concepts and practices.
