Water Management

Integrated Water Resources Management

Water Management 01This component enhances flood protection in polders by rehabilitation of the embankments and water intakes and outlets and by improving the water distribution and drainage systems; fine-tunes and rehabilitates the infrastructural works of selected polders; and creates an effective operational partnership between government agencies (e.g. BWDB, DAE, DoC and others) and community groups (WMG/WMA). Planning, design and implementation of civil works are based on the principle of participatory water resource management. The WMG/WMA’s are involved in quality checking of the construction works. The earthworks are carried out by LCS’s (Landless Contracting Societies), including women participation as applicable.
