ICCWRM project background
Zambia’s reform of the water sector was launched in 1993 and is now introducing principles of IWRM in the new Water Resources Management Act (2011). As part of this, several projects are being implemented, of immediate relevance for this assignment:
Integrating Climate Change in Water Resource Monitoring (ICCWRM), financed by the Energy and Climate Fund (ECF), with technical support through a consortium of GFA and DHI South Africa. The project is supporting development of an Integrated Water Resource Management Information System (IWRMIS) that is to integrate climate change in water resources management.
The organisational concept for the IWRMIS is shaped by the functions and skills required in the decentralised structure of WARMA, from the data unit at central level, to the sub-catchment councils, to perform IT management and maintenance of the core systems, quality control of data entering the system, and processing of data into information products to support decision making by WARMA and external stakeholders.
