Water Management Zones

In order to enact the Water Sector Reform that was started in 2006, the Ministry of Water and Environment established a new institutional setup to implement Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) that is aimed at de-concentration of water resources management at the Water Management Zone and catchment levels.


Catchment based Water Resources Management (CbWRM)

Water resources support key sectors of the economy namely hydropower generation, agriculture,fisheries, domestic water supply, industry, navigation etc. However, efficiency and sustainability of intervention under these sectors has recently been a concern in Uganda mainly due to inadequate sectoral collaboration in planning and implementation, increasing frequency of floods and droughts, environmental degradation and pollution of water resources.
