Founding of IWMI in Sri Lanka

Founding of IWMI in Sri Lanka

In 2015, the International Water Management Institute (IWMI), initially founded as the International Irrigation Management Institute (IIMI), will be celebrating its 30th anniversary of the start of operations.

Over the years, the relationship between the Government of Sri Lanka and the Institute has been cordial and productive. IIMI was the first and, perhaps, remains as the only international entity to establish its headquarters in Sri Lanka, with a mandate to manage a global operation from here.

This is the personal experience the writer had of the circumstances and events that led to the establishment of this Institute.
