Water Management Zones

In order to enact the Water Sector Reform that was started in 2006, the Ministry of Water and Environment established a new institutional setup to implement Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) that is aimed at de-concentration of water resources management at the Water Management Zone and catchment levels.

 

Catchment based Water Resources Management (CbWRM)

The Directorate of Water Resources Management (DWRM) is implementing Catchment based Water Resources Management (CbWRM) as part of its water resources management reforms. This process deconcentrates management of water resources along hydrological units called catchments; areas that contribute water to a common outlet and are, therefore, independent of administrative boundaries.
