    Monitoring Tailor-Made IV is a conference dealing with strategies and practices for the collection and dissemination of information in support of integrated water resources management. It is the stage for scientists from different disciplines and policy makers alike and seeks to connect the different worlds of these groups. The conference aims to obtain new views on information for sustainable water resources management.

    The previous MTM-conferences converged towards the need for multidisciplinary approaches and an overall integration over disciplines and space when dealing with information for integrated water resources management. This relates for instance to integration of surface water management and ground water management but is also connected to transboundary river basin management.

    Monitoring Tailor-Made IV builds on this integrative idea and deals with the transition from multidisciplinary to interdisciplinary in integrated water resources management. The issue of spatial integration will be expanded to an overall global perspective where experiences from local and regional monitoring and assessment can be input for global assessments and vice versa. The spatial integration stretches out from freshwater to coastal zones and the marine environment.
