This article analyzes the literature of case studies in the last decade on integrated water resources management. For this, a systematic search of the literature was made in the Scopus and SciELO databases. The categorized publications were divided among the selected case study countries, namely the United States, Canada, Israel, Sweden, China, the Netherlands, Australia, Vietnam, Thailand, Scotland, Oman, Brazil, and Colombia. The objectives of each case study are presented, besides the problems pointed out in each place and the respective solutions pointed out and challenges. Among the problems pointed out, there is a decline in the number of fish species and populations; Water pollution; disconnected environmental governance; lack of water, due to increased consumption, combined with the decrease in rainfall. As for the achievements, one innovation is the "environmental water bill”, specifically in California. Canada has amended environmental legislation. Israel has established a new water authority and China has achieved important results in the recovery of the Yangtze river basin.
