River Basin Planning

Overview

River Basin Plans are to be prepared for priority basins commencing with Tungabhadra sub-basin. A river basin profile will be developed first to fully understand and prioritise the issues in the basin. The core focus of the plan is expected to be water sharing and security under conditions of water scarcity. The profile and plan will be developed participatively, including with an interim RBO, and use the KWRIS and decision support system. Once endorsed by government, agreed components will commence implementation. A priority subset of this task will be to assess water availability and the impacts of irrigation modernisation projects.
