Water Resource Management



Ministry of Water and Environment (MoWE)


The project aimed at participatory identification, preparation and implementation of selected priority investments in the Upper Nile Water Management Zone (WMZ) in Uganda. The WMZ is composed of three distinct catchments, the Albert Nile, the Aswa and the Kidepo watersheds. The project area covered over 46,800 km2. Within the Project, SGI experts assisted the MoWE’s Directorate of Water Resources Management in preparing catchment management plans (CMPs) containing a number of agreed infrastructure investments and various water management interventions and actions meant to help resolve conflict, conserve and protect natural resources, and ensure equitable access to and use of water resources.
