Water supply watershed planning and management: an integrated approach

Objective

The WADI project will focus on the development of tools and methodologies that cane used to assist decision making in watershed management boards and water planning authorities having to determine where to locate new dams/reservoirs. The tools and methodologies will address the various elements related to reservoir identification (geographic location, water volume, infrastructure cost) given the watershed characteristics (water demand requirements, water resources, MNT, etc)in an integrated manner that considers socio-economic issues as well as environmental aspects related to flood and drought risks. In addition, WADI will develop advanced data processing tools for modelling and simulation related to floods, reservoir design, and optimisation of the complete planned network of a watershed. Field applications will be performed on pilot basins in Morocco and Lebanon.
