Welcome to WRA 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 quaility in the country’s water bodies. This involves intergrating land use activities into WRA Water Quality Control programs.
The Authority 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.
CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION
The Authority undertakes climate actions in terms of mitigation and adaptation to minimizing the effects of global warming and climate change.
