Balochistan Integrated Water Resources Management and Development (BIWRMDP)
The project combines technical assistance to the Government of Balochistan to lay the foundation for a gradual transition to IWRM with targeted investments to support implementation of IWRM approaches within a framework of community mobilization and participation in the Nari and Porali basins.
The Project will support implementation of the 2006 IWRM Policy of the Government of Balochistan. The key issues identified in this Policy that will be supported through this project include:
(i) establishing adequate and reliable water data,
(ii) improving coordination between the water and agricultural sectors,
(iii) adopting an integrated approach to project formulation and to project Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E),
(iv) improving irrigation water use efficiency,
(v) improving groundwater recharge through watershed management and water conservation, and
(vi) ensuring effective participation of water users and other stakeholders in water management.
These will provide a solid foundation to guide longer-term reforms, a road-map for which will be developed during the Project.See more
