What We Do


Water Resources Authority (WRA) sustainably and equitably allocates water resources among the various competing needs. WRA also requires that stakeholders are involved in the process. The “Water Use Permit” is used to carry out this function.



Water Resources Authority also controls pollution and improves water quality in the country’s water bodies. This involves integrating land use activities into WRA Water Quality Control programs.



WRA collects all information on water resources, analyses, stores and disseminates it. This information is critical for water allocation, water resources investment decision making and modeling, to enact scenarios to better understand the impact of climate change in future.



The Authority undertakes climate actions in terms of mitigation and adaptation to minimizing the effects of global warming and climate change.
