Brazil - Ceara Integrated Water Resource Management Project (PROGERIRH) (English)

The Ceara Integrated Water Resource Management Project, will increase a sustainable water supply for multiple uses, and improve the efficiency of the State of Ceara's integrated water resources management system, thus decreasing the vulnerability of poor populations to cyclical drought. It will further promote soil and vegetation management in tributary watersheds, to enhance water conservation, in turn, minimizing erosion. Natural water storage mechanisms will be maximized, through adequate management of critical micro-basins, and groundwater resources. The project components include: 1) Management practices, to improve institutional, legal, and administrative frameworks, emphasizing participatory management mechanisms. This includes construction of hydraulic infrastructures for an integrated management of river-basins, through a sustainable cost recovery development. 2) Increase in the network of strategic reservoirs, integration of river basins, and, rehabilitation of existing hydraulic infrastructure, which includes construction works, and projects, to mitigate environmental impacts, and environmental policies will be integrated with water management policies, to increase the volume of water supplied by the State's water management company. 3) The natural resource management component, will foster a micro watershed management pilot, and, a groundwater management study.
