Project General Description

The project is part of the modernization actions of the Algerian Public Administration. It involves strengthening the capacities of the National Agency for Water Resources (ANRH) through the implementation of a Geographic Information System (GIS) in order to facilitate the actions and interventions to be put in place for decision-makers and water resource managers. This strengthening of ANRH's water resources information management capacity will meet the needs of the public and private sectors for water resources studies, planning and knowledge development. The expected results of the project are: (i) structuring of all data relating to water resources in a single repository allowing the exchange of information; (ii) adaptation of the current ANRH organization to ensure the proper functioning of the information base; (iii) implementation of a GIS to facilitate actions and interventions; and (iv) launching and implementation of the GIS.

Project Objectives

The overall objective is to enable, through the implementation of a GIS, a coherent management of data and information to optimise decision-making in integrated water resources management.


The main beneficiaries of the project are: (i) National Water Resources Agency (ANRH), which will see its capacities in terms of water resources management strengthened; (ii) public and private sectors involved in the water and sanitation sector, which will benefit from a better knowledge of water resources; and (iii) decision-makers of the various public administration structures in charge of the water and sanitation service, who will see their decision-making capacities strengthened thanks to the availability and reliability of the information.
