Project General Description

The present intervention concerns the Ewaso Ng’iro North River Catchment Conservation and Water Resources Management Study. The Ewaso Ng’iro North River is subject to dramatic variations of high and low seasonal flows which seriously affect the volume of water reaching the lower parts of the basin. The problem is compounded by the very high population in the upper catchment, which is rapidly increasing through migration from the overcrowded high potential areas. The study should provide a comprehensive proposal for an optimal water resources management and a feasibility report for selected projects to strengthen the Government’s capacity to manage water allocation and to address environmental concerns in the Ewaso Ng’iro North river basin.

Project Objectives

The main beneficiary of the study is the Kenyan Government.
