 This Project constitutes one of the national Water Management Development Project sub-components and focuses on the participatory identification, preparation and implementation of selected priority investments in the Upper Nile Water Management Zone (WMZ) in northern Uganda.

In particular, the purpose of the consultancy sought is to assist the Directorate of Water Resources Management (DWRM) of the Ministry of Water and Environment of Uganda in preparing catchment management plans (CMPs) for the Lower Aswa and the Albert Nile – West catchments (see the map below, areas marked in green and red, respectively).

The project has a timespan of 12 months.
