    An overview of the integrated water resources management (IWRM) process is provided as well as an outline of the Hydrology, Environment, Life, and Policy (HELP) programme's actions over the next 5 years as a follow-up to the recommendations of the Kalmar Symposium of 2002. Most of HELP's implementation, however, will be within the HELP basins themselves, which is consistent with the 'bottom-up' approach of the programme. HELP's niche in contributing to the IWRM process is by defining knowledge gaps and acting via a global network of basins. Through the involvement and support of stakeholders, longer-term visionary values of research with subsequent benefits to society may be more quickly realized.
