About the Project:

The Ministry of Environment, Water and Climate (MEWC) in close collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, Mechanization and Irrigation Development (MAMID), Ministry of Energy and Power Development (MEPD), and with the assistance from the World Bank is developing ‘A National Water Resources Master Plan for 2020-2040 horizons’ (NWRMP).

The objective of the assignment is to develop a National Water Resources Master Plan (NWRMP) for 2020-2040 horizon that is consistent with the National Water Policy and the country’s short term, mid-term and long term development plans. The general objective of this NWRMP is to ensure a sustainable water resources development, utilization and management in the country. This Master plan will be a blueprint for a process of sustainable water, land and related resources development and management with the aim to maximize economic and social welfare in an equitable manner while safeguarding the environment.

Our Role:

VisionRI is engaged by the Zimbabwe National Water Authority (ZINWA) to prepare a sustainable water resources master plan for the country. We are adopting a highly participatory approach to understand and meet the expectations of all stakeholders through this master plan. As part of our deliverables, we are developing a water MIS for the ZINWA. This water MIS is a customized version of IDEA – K&M containing water atlas, various datasets and software for the modelling. This water MIS is a comprehensive knowledge management tool as well as a centralised data repository for the ZINWA.
