A Decision-Aid for resolving Environment-Agriculture Water Conflicts in the Great Ruaha River Basin, Tanzania.
This paper discusses the current water management framework in the Great Ruaha River Basin, the need for having a river basin Decision-Aid (DA), and a description of the DA, which is currently being developed by the RIPARWIN project (Raising Irrigation Productivity And Releasing Water for Intersectoral Needs). The DA is designed with the involvement of key stakeholders in the basin and will help assessing, among other things, the hydrological and socio-economic impacts of different allocation decisions.
