ARA-Sul is improving their decision-making procedures. One component is improved water allocation planning. FutureWater has developed for the Umbeluzi two Water Allocation Models (WAMs) in 2014. A refreshing workshop for water managers and decision makers was held in June 2023.
Groundwater availability is critical to the Umbeluzi Catchment. Currently, there is a need for a simple tool that can asses the availability of resources in the ground. This especially to asses the permits for groundwater extractions. It is expected that a simplified modelling approach can provide a trend analysis sufficient…
The GLOW project aims to pilot an operational service that provides timely and easy access to current and forecasted water availability and demand across the entire Maputo River and the Black Umbeluzi River Basins.
