राष्ट्रीय जल विज्ञान परियोजनाNATIONAL HYDROLOGY PROJECT
PROJET AT A GLANCE
PROJECT DEVELOPMENT OBJECTIVES
The project objectives is to improve the extent, quality and accessibility of water resources information, and to strengthen the capacity of water resources management institutions in India.
The project has two groups of direct beneficiaries: (i) central and state implementing agencies (IAs) responsible for surface and/or groundwater planning and management, including river basin organizations; and (ii) users of the WRIS across various sectors and around the World. The ultimate beneficiaries will be the selected farm communities benefitted from pilot projects for water management; rural and urban water and power users, populations affected by floods and droughts, especially poor rural people, and farm families who may benefit from improved irrigation water supply and management; stakeholders across the energy, inland waterways, environment and agriculture ministries; research and educational institutions; students and researchers, NGOs, civil society organizations and the private sector.
Component A - Water Resource Management System (WRMS)
This component will focus on improving the extent, timeliness and reliability of water resources data.
Component B - Water Resources Information System (WRIS)
This component will support strengthening of National and sub-national water information centers with web-enabled water resources information systems through standardization of databases and products from various data sources/departments;
Component C - Water Resources & Operation Planning System (WROPS)
This component will support the development of interactive analytical tools and decision support platform that would integrate database, models and scenario manager for hydrological flood forecasting, integrated reservoir operations and water resources accounting.
Component D - Institutions Capacity Enhancement (ICE)
This component aims to build capacity for knowledge-based water resources management.
