The Water Resources Planning and Management Project is one of eight basin wide projects under the Shared Vision Program (SVP) of the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) benefiting the nine NBI member countries, namely Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda. The Project is an important part of the strategy of the governments of the Nile countries towards ensuring that the Nile Basin water resources are developed and managed in an equitable, optimal, integrated, and sustainable manner to support socio-economic development in the region and improve the standard of living of their population. It seeks to address the fundamental need for strengthening capacity and developing tools so that the Nile Basin countries can attain an equal level of capability for integrated water resources planning and management. The project will enable the NBI, in addition to the formulation of water policy, to undertake the following activities: (i) Water Resources Planning and Management; (ii) Preparation of a computer based Decision Support System (DSS); (iii) Regional coordination and Facilitation.
The project aims at furthering cooperation amongst the Nile countries and making informed decisions at national and regional levels on the basis of enhanced capacity in policy and strategic planning, strengthened institutional capacity, availability of common integrated water resource management tools, and improved mechanisms for sharing information.
The project beneficiaries are the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) and the Nile riparian countries.
